Members of the Institute for Molecular Medicine (August 2017)


Bartel, Yvonne

 

Postdoctoral Researcher

Yvonne Bartel studied Biochemistry at the Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main with the focus on Cellular Biology. She worked in the lab of Prof. Dr. Jacob Piehler and obtained her diploma in 2005. Her doctoral thesis at the Georg-Speyer-Haus in the group of Dr. Manuel Grez focused on strategies to interfere with the leukemogenic function of the chimeric fusion protein AML1/ETO. After obtaining her PhD in 2011, she joined the lab of Alexander Steinle as a postdoctoral researcher where she is now addressing the regulation and function of the NKp80 ligand AICL.

Born, Christina

 

Laboratory Manager

Prior to joining the lab of Alexander Steinle at the Institute for Molecular Medicine in February 2010, Christina Born completed a professional apprenticeship as biological technician at Sanofi-Aventis, Frankfurt. Beside her work as TA at the IMM she did a distance study at the University of Mainz (Molecular Biology). In 2013, she obtained her certificate as a graduated laboratory technician (IHK, Darmstadt). Christina did her Bachelor thesis at the Institute for Molecular Medicine working on the generation of monoclonal antibody specific for the human skin-associated immunoreceptor KACL in 2015. Since then she works as Laboratory Manager in the group of Alexander Steinle.

Friede, Miriam

 

Doctoral Student

Miriam Friede studied Biochemistry at the Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main with the focus on Immunology and Infection Biology. In 2007, she spent several months at the University of Oxford funded by the Erasmus program, where she contributed to research in the field of protein crystallography. She obtained her diploma in December 2012. Her diploma thesis at the Georg-Speyer-Haus in the group of Prof. Dr. Winfried Wels focused on the genetic modification of an human NK cell line with chimeric antigen receptors targeted against B cell lymphoma. She started her PhD in the group of Alexander Steinle in April 2013 where she is now addressing the expression and function of the C-type lectin-like receptor/ligand-pair Nkrp1g and Clrf.

Krueger, Andreas

Associate Professor

Andreas studied Biochemistry in Hannover prior to moving to the German Cancer Research Center Heidelberg, Germany, where he investigated the molecular mechanism of T cell death to complete his PhD thesis. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, he discovered his passion for the early events during the life of an emerging T cell, which have become the focus of his research ever since. Between 2007 and 2015 he was first Emmy-Noether Research Group Leader and later Associate Professor for Regenerative Immunology at the Institute of Immunology and the Cluster of Excellence REBIRTH at Hannover Medical School, Germany. There, he started to investigate the role of non-coding RNAs during T cell development and focused on spatio-temporal dynamics of pre-thymic and intra-thymic steps of T cell formation in health and disease. Since November 2015 Andreas continues his work as Associate Professor for Molecular Immunology at the Institute for Molecular Medicine.

Kunze-Schumacher, Heike

 

Doctoral Student

Heike Kunze-Schumacher completed a professional apprenticeship as medical technical assistant at Hannover Medical School in 2010. Subsequently, she joined the research and development department at the Institute for Transfusion Medicine and investigated various aspects of antigen recruitment and presentation through MHC class I molecules. In 2011, beside her employment as MTA, she started to study Biology at Leibniz University Hannover and obtained her bachelor's degree in 2014. Since her bachelor thesis at the Institute for Transfusion Medicine at Hannover Medical School she was focusing on HLA-mediated drug hypersensitivity. In 2016, she completed the master degree program Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover. In September 2016, Heike joined the group of Andreas Krueger at the Institute for Molecular Medicine for her doctoral thesis.
