Research Interests


Current project:

Since April 2014 in the group of Prof. Dr. Marc F. Schetelig. The group develops and evaluates transgenic insects, such as mosquitos and fruit flies, for use in insect pest control programs. 
This work and responsibilities consist of Mosquito rearing, Mosquito germline transformation via embryonic microinjection, genetic crosses and screening for transgenics, molecular sequence analysis with Geneious Software, inverse PCR, expression analysis with qPCR, intetegration analysis, droplet digital PCR, creating cloning strategies and cloning of plasmid vectors.


Professional experience:                       

From Feb. 2011 to April 2014 as technical assistant in the project SFB/Transregio 79 – „Materials for Tissue Regeneration in Systemically Diseased Bones“ in the Laboratory of Experimental Trauma Surgery, Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen. The focus of the work was on developing suitable animal models and testing newly developed biomaterials. This work included animal surgeries and euthanasia, collecting tissue and bone samples, sectioning,  histological, immunohistochemical and enzyme staining and their histomorphometric evaluation. Additionally development and validation of PCR and qPCR studies for gene expression analysis of markers of bone formation and resorption and evaluation of the results for the publications was a large part of the work.


From Aug.1987 to Feb. 2011 as technical assistant in the field of clinical and physiological research and studies at the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Clin. Res. Unit for Blood Coagulation, Giessen and Max-Planck-Institute for Clinical and Physiological Research, Bad Nauheim. This work involved cloning of plasmids, transformation, transfection, expression in cell lines and evaluation of the recombinant coagulation factors as well as purification and characterization of proteins from plasma, preparation of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, screening of patients for genetic defects associated with thrombophilia and clinical diagnosis in the central laboratory of the Kerckhoff Clinik.
