As a trained biologist at JMU Würzburg with interests in biophysics I wrote my master thesis in the lab of Markus Sauer, who is known for his work in developing dSTORM. In the Klotzsch lab I am building a PALM/STORM setup, where we will study the dynamics of protein aggregation of Fused-in-sarcoma (FUS) mutants, which are known to be associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). FUS is a nuclear RNA/DNA-binding protein and involved in the regulation of RNA/DNA dependent processes (e.g. transcription, splicing and translation).
