Former postdoc in the Theoretical Biophysics group headed by Edda Klipp at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and member of the LiSyM network, I am now an independent Group Leader at the Technical University of Munich focusing on developing an advanced bioinformatics toolbox for analyzing, integrating, and mining of various omics data in the context of precision medicine as well as molecular disease and patient subtyping.
Tools: Milliplex analysis, qPCR, Molecular Biology, Laser scan microscopy, Immunohistochemistry, Cell and tissue culture, confocal microscopy, Mouse surgery, RNA analysis, rtPCR, Cytometry and fluorescent microscopy, Mouse experiments in vivo, Isolation of primary cells (hepatocytes and non-parenchymal cells)
I received my diploma in biology in 2001 from the Heinrich-Heine-University in Duesseldorf and the Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D.) degree in 2006 from the University of Hohenheim in Germany. The practical part of my Ph.D. thesis had been realized at the clinic for gastroenterology, hepatology and infectiology at the university hospital in Duesseldorf. After my Ph.D. I focussed my studies on MAP-kinase-regulated cytokine/chemokine expression in response to bacterial or viral pathogens with a main issue on
