My project focused on a mitochondrial, age related protein deacetylase and its influence on motor neuron diseases like Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Huntington's disease. I examined its expression levels and function in murine models and human tissues.
I defended my thesis in October 2017 and am working now as a Post-Doc in the lab of Jun.-Prof. Karin Danzer at Ulm University.

My focus is on deciphering the role of different septin proteins in hematopoietic stem cell aging and hematopoiesis. 

In my spare time, I love to do all kinds of sports, I enjoy baking and spending time with friends and family. 

I graduated in November 2017 and am now working as a Post-Doc in Prof. Geiger's lab at the Institute of Molecular Medicine.

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most commonly neurodegenerative disorder. In 2011, a VPS35 missense mutation was found in independent PD patients of different families. I  analyzed the putative role of VPS35p in HM homeostasis in yeast.

I defended my thesis in January 2017. Now I am working as a Post-Doc at the Institute of Human Genetics at Ulm University.

In my PhD project, I used murine models of experimental autoimmune diabetes (EAD) to define antigens and/or antigen formulations that specifically inhibit preproinsulin (ppins)-specific CD8 T cells and EAD. I was interested in the role and function of CD4+ Foxp3+ regulatory T cells in the protective immune responses in young and old mice, as these cells serve as a promising target in context of future immunotherapies against autoimmune syndromes.

I defended my thesis in November 2016. Now I am working as a Post-Doc at the Institute of Internal Medicine I at Ulm University.
