Personal profile


Annika van Hummel completed her PhD in S100 proteins in osteoarthritis in 2014 under the supervision of Prof Hala Zreiqat and Prof Christopher Little at The University of Sydney. She then joined the Dementia Research Unit at The University of New South Wales working as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof Lars Ittner and moved to Macquarie University as part of the new Dementia Research Centre in December 2018.

Research interests

Since joining the Ittner group in 2014, Annika van Hummel has developed an interest in the use of genetically modified mice as models of neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Motor Neuron Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease), both to better understand the underlying cellular mechanisms and to test new treatment options.
