Sjoerd Postma studied Molecular Life Sciences at Radboud University Nijmegen. His research internships concerned click chemistry, enzyme-loaded nanoparticles, and the development of a fluorescent hydrogel to study reaction-diffusion of calcium ions. Sjoerd’s final internship was part of a program of the Radboud Honours Academy. This internship was carried out at the University of Cambridge and its main objective was to measure the conformational dynamics of diubiquitin chains with single-molecule fluorescence techniques.
