Anja Groth "Chromatin Replication and Epigenome Maintenance"
Prof. Anja Groth leads a research group at the the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) at the University of Copenhagen.
Anja Groth received her PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Copenhagen in 2004 for her research in the laboratory of Drs. Lukas and Bartek. She did her postdoctoral training from 2005 to 2007 with Dr. Almouzni at Institut Curie, Paris, focusing on histone dynamics during DNA replication. In 2008 Dr. Groth started as a junior group leader at BRIC, supported by a Junior Group Leader Fellowship from the Lundbeck Foundation. She was tenured in 2013 and promoted to professor in 2016.
Anja has received several prestigious awards, including the Danish Research Council Young Elite Researcher Prize (2009), the Danish Cancer Society Junior Research Prize (2011), the Heirloom Award for Women Scientist Leaders (2014), the Elite Research Prize by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science (2018) and Queen Margrethe II's Research Prize (2020).
The focus of the Groth group is to elucidate how chromatin organization and function is propagated during mitotic cell division to maintain genome and epigenome stability.
Her research group has contributed with seminal discoveries on histone chaperone function, chromatin replication mechanisms, inheritance of histone post-translational modifications and DNA repair pathway choice.
