Personal information

Anja Wilmes received a PhD in “Cell and Molecular Biology” from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand in 2008 under the supervision of Prof. John H. Miller. She joined Pauls Jennings' group at the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria as a PostDoc where she habilitated (venia docendi) in “Physiology” with the thesis "Molecular investigations of chemical stress induction in the renal proximal tubule” in 2016. Since 2018 she is an Assistant professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

Her work focuses on the development of human cell culture models for toxicity screening with a major focus on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell differentiation into renal cells, including proximal tubular cells and glomerulus cells, and into liver cells. In her research she uses integrated omics, High Content Imaging, Seahorse assay and other cellular assays. Furthermore she is also interested in transport studies and microfluidic systems.

Anja was previously involved in the Predict-IV (7th framework) and StemBANCC (IMI) projects and is currently involved in the EU projects EU-ToxRisk and RISK-HUNT3R and the Dutch project VHP4Safety. Her current individual projects include investigating animal-free extracellular matrix (ECM) coatings for iPSC culture (Stiftung Set project) and investigating mitochondria toxicity in iPSC-derived models (Stiftung ProCare project).
