Group picture of the Vlaming lab, currently 5 people. From left to right: Nathalie de Wagenaar, Ilse Lagerwaard, Hanneke Vlaming, Anatoli Todorov, Laura Torroba Vicario.


  • Hanneke started as a group leader in 2023 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the Adelman lab at Harvard Medical School. She believes the lab will be the most fun AND produce the highest quality science if its members are happy, inspired, their full selves, and in charge of their own professional development. She cares about mentoring young scientists inside and outside the lab.
