About: Annemiek Beverdam

Biography:
Dr. Annemiek Beverdam is a developmental geneticist with special interest in epidermal development and regeneration in the mouse, and in the genetic basis of human regenerative skin disease. She obtained her PhD in the lab of Dr Frits Meijlink at the Hubrecht Institute in The Netherlands. Subsequently, she performed her postdoctoral research in the labs of Dr Giovanni Levi in Italy, Professor Peter Koopman at the IMB in Brisbane, and Professor Brian Key at UQ. Currently, she is a Lecturer in Anatomy, with a focus on Developmental Biology, and she is the head of the Developmental and Regenerative Dermatology Unit at the CGMU at the School of Medical Sciences at the University of New South Wales. The primary research focus of her lab is the genetic and molecular context in which Yes-associated protein (YAP) functions to control normal epidermal homeostasis, how these processes go awry in regenerative skin diseases such as skin cancer, and to identify avenues to cure these disorders. Her research is part of a larger, long-term and ambitious goal to identify key genes linking stem cell biology to organ size and growth.
