Celia Berkers's Biography

Celia Berkers, Assistant Professor, Utrecht University

Celia Berkers studied chemistry at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. She started her PhD at the Harvard Medical School in Boston and continued her research at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam. Berkers received her PhD degree with honours in 2010 and was awarded the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Prize 2010 for most promising young scientist. She then moved to the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in Glasgow, where she did a post-doc in the field of Cancer Metabolism. In 2013, dr. Berkers joined the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Department at Utrecht University as an independent group leader. In 2014, she was awarded the Heineken Young Scientists Award for Biochemistry and Biophysics by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. Research in the Berkers group centres on profiling metabolic changes in the context of drug resistance, with the ultimate goal to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention.

Treatment with proteasome inhibitors is often hampered by the occurrence of resistance. Here, the metabolic mode of resistance to such drugs is elucidated using a metabolomics approach, revealing a potential role for nutrient starvation in the treatment of resistant tumours.
