Lize van der Linden

My scientific journey began in 2014 when I enrolled at the University of South Africa for a B.Sc in Life Science, where I majored in biochemistry and microbiology, and did a minor in business studies. After graduating, I went on to start my B.Sc Honours in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Cape Town in 2017. After this, I joined the lab of Dr. Oelgeschläger for my M.Sc in Molecular and Cell Biology starting in 2018 at the University of Cape Town. During my M.Sc, my research focused on biochemical characterization of general transcription factors of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. During this project, I became interested in intrinsically disordered proteins and their role in biomolecular condensates. This research interest brought me to the lab of Prof. Alberti, where I started as a doctoral student in 2019. My doctoral research focused on biochemistry of the fused in sarcoma (FUS) protein. After handing in my thesis, I decided to join the exciting team of Prof. Wagner (and CeTI) as a scientific and data manager.

Projects/Cooperation within CeTI you are involved in:
I will be working in the Professorship of AI-Based Assistance Systems in Surgery (Prof. Wagner), at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus at TU Dresden.

Further Questions:
What motivated you to do what you do today?
I spent a long time in academic research environments and in collaborations, and realized that research and science needs greater support and organization to work more efficiently.

What do you find particularly interesting about CeTI?
I think CeTI brings new meaning to the phrase interdisciplinary; it is amazing to see so many researchers from completely unrelated fields come together with common goals.

How do you spend your free time?
Playing Dungeons and Dragons, spending time with friends, and listening to music.
