Jenny van der Wijst assistant professor

Jenny van der Wijst obtained her PhD degree in Medical Science at the Radboud University Nijmegen in 2011. Her research focuses on the molecular and cellular physiology of epithelial ion channels and transporters. She worked as an EMBO-funded postdoc at the lab of Dario Alessi (MRC-PPU, Scotland) and as a NWO Veni-funded postdoc at the department of Physiology, Radboudumc. Currently, she holds a tenure position at this department, and works as a Marie Curie fellow at the lab of Yifan Cheng (UCSF, USA) to expand her research line towards structure-function analysis of ion channels.

Research group Epithelial ion transport: a matter of structure, function, and regulation

Jenny van der Wijst's research group studies the regulation of epithelial ion transport, with a fundamental focus on the electrophysiological analysis combined with the biochemistry of ion channels, membrane transporters and cell signaling.
