About me

Biology is the study of life and as a biologist i am especially fascinated how cells organize or transform the huge diversity of little molecules into elegant networks making life itself possible. Working in the field of molecular biology and genetic engineering inaugurates me a broad range of methods to decode and unravel complex interactions of regulatory networks composed of coding and noncoding nucleic acids (e.g. genes, miRNAs, lncRNA) or proteins (e.g. receptors, kinases, transcription factors). Intriguingly, gaining this basic knowledge enables us not only to understand how cancer and other diseases emerge but also opens new possibilities to develop cures and therapies against these malignancies.
