Hetty Kleinjan

Hetty Kleinjan has been appointed to project 10 which is based at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique/UPMC. Her research is supervised by Dr Simon Dittami. Originally from the Netherlands, Hetty started her research in July 2015, after completing her training at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, where she was able to build on her understanding of in vitro bacterial communities and the resilience of microbiota against disturbance by pathogens. This work also allowed Hetty to gain experience in the use of various molecular and microbiology techniques, such as bacterial cloning, culturing, high-throughput assays, sequencing and fluorescent microscopy. Hetty completed an MSc degree in Biology in 2014 at the Wageningen University. For her thesis, she studied the expression of intestinal proteins in mice. With a strong interest in host-microbial interactions, Hetty’s research at CNRS/UPMC will allow her to better understand how symbionts can contribute to the well-being of algae.
