About Me

My name is Gerco Hassink. I’m a cell biologist with a background in ER membrane protein quality control, protein degradation, the ubiquitin system, and in the endolysosomal system. I performed my PhD at Leiden University Medical Center and continued my research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, after which I did a second post-doc at Utrecht Medical Center. Currently I’m doing research and provide technical assistance to the research theme "Neurotechnology and cellular engineering" at both the clinical neurophysiology.
