About meI am a biologist and biomedical engineer by training with a general interest in life science technology. The exciting combination of molecular biology, stem cells, tissue and genetic engineering that entails Regenerative Medicine was the driving force that led me to do a PhD. As a part of a Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) project, the idea is to develop an in vivo and in vitro a fully functional and characterized biological sino-atrial node system.
