Deborah Boes, PhD student at TU Delft

My name is Deborah Boes and I am a PhD student in the group of Peter-Leon Hagedoorn. I have a background in Biocatalysis and immunology by obtaining a double master degree Life Science and Technology at the TU Delft and Leiden University. After that I have worked for a year in industry, where I focused on differentiating human iPSCs into other cells types, before I started my PhD at TU Delft.

Within the W-BioCat project, my research focuses on expressing tungsten-containing enzymes in an industrial workhorse micro-organism, such as E. coli, to be able to produce these enzymes on a large scale. This requires overcoming several bottlenecks in the biosynthesis of the W-cofactor.
