About me

After receiving my PhD degree in Molecular Biology from the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), Division of functional Genome Analysis in the year 2012, I continued working there. My research interests and focus are affinity proteomics and the application of high throughput proteomics methods in cancer biology and diagnosis. The research applies high density antibody microarrays in discovering new biomarkers that can be useful in the early detection of pancreatic cancer. In addition, another focus of my unit is unraveling the nature of molecular communication between the cellular components of the tumor microenvironment.
