Welcome Isabel!

26. March 2018

A warm welcome to Isabel who has recently joined MBM group as a PhD student.

Isabel did her master studies in Molecular Biosciences at the University of Heidelberg. In her master thesis with Prof. Dr. Michael Knop she studied protein-protein interactions in the yeast HOG-pathway with fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy.
In her PhD at the MBM group she will be investigating mechanosensing of protein kinases using MD simulations. Her focus lies on the integrin-linked kinase and the abl kinase. Welcome!

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
