Welcome Chris!

7. June 2021

A warm welcome to Christoph who has recently joined the MBM group.

Here are a few words from Christoph about himself:

Hi, I am Chris with a biochemistry and synthetic biology background, hoping to add molecular dynamics simulations to the list soon. During my master’s thesis in the MBM group, I am investigating collagen crosslinks in more detail to then extend the KIMMDY scheme to more crosslinks. On the weekends, I enjoy climbing and woodworking.
