About Joyce

Joyce Lebbink studied Molecular Sciences (specialty Biochemistry) at the Wageningen University and Research Center in the Netherlands from 1988 to 1994. She obtained her PhD in 1999 at the same University, characterizing molecular details of thermostable enzymes at the Department of Microbiology. She further obtained experience in biophysics and structural biology during her Postdoc at the Center for Structural Biochemistry, Karolinska Institute in Sweden. In 2002 she returned to the Netherlands as Postdoc in the Protein Crystallography group of Prof. Titia Sixma at the Netherlands Cancer Institute to study structure and mechanisms of DNA Mismatch Repair.

Since September 2007 she is further studying mismatch repair and its interactions with homologous recombination at the Department of Molecular Genetics at the Erasmus MC.

Joyce has received Marie-Curie, NWO-VENI and NWO-VIDI personal fellowships and is scientific coordinator of the EU-Marie Curie Training Network “DNARepairMan”.
