Anna Schmidt

Postdoctoral Fellow

Anna was born and raised in Berlin, Germany. She moved to London in 2014 to do her BSc in Biochemistry at Imperial College London and discovered her interest in structural enzymology. Anna stayed on at Imperial to develop her skills in protein crystallography and electron microscopy, and to undertake her PhD, for which she used a multidisciplinary approach, including biophysical, biochemical, and structural techniques, to investigate nitrogenase and nitrogenase-binding proteins, solving several new structures in the process. She joined the DNA Replication Group in April 2024 as a postdoctoral fellow to use her diverse skill set in protein biochemistry to investigate human DNA licensing. In her spare time, Anna enjoys exploring London by bicycle, poetry/spoken word, and sharing with her friends her passion for cooking and baking.
