About

Nadja qualified with a diploma degree in Biology from the University of Jena/Germany in 2003. After her study for a PhD in Microbiology (2003-2007) in the Laboratory of PD Dr. Sabine Brantl (RNA-mediated regulation in Gram-positive Bacteria), she went to Professor Gerhart Wagners' lab in Uppsala/Sweden. Shortly after her arrival in Uppsala, Nadja acquired a prestigious, highly competitive, two year post-doc fellow-ship from the Swedish Research Council. During her time in Uppsala she began to work on CRISPR systems in the model bacterium E. coli, long before the ground breaking discovery, of applying CRISPR/Cas9 as genome editing tool, were made. She returned back to Germany in 2011 to take up a post-doctoral position at the Institute of Molecular Infection Biology at the University of Würzburg for almost 6 years (2011-2016) at the laboratory of Prof. Jörg Vogel. Nadja's research projects were outlined to arrive at a deep mechanistic understanding of CRISPR systems, as well as to probe into comprehensively mapped transcriptome data sets in bacterial pathogens, e.g. Salmonella and Neisseria. Nadja also started to work on alternative roles, which Cas proteins or their complexes, have in overall RNA metabolism or regulation. During her time at the University of Würzburg she gained teaching experience. Since October 2017 she runs a project at at the german-based health startup company Perfood. The scientific concept of Perfood is dealing with compositional changes in the human gut microbiota as well as elevated postprandial blood glucose level as major risk to metabolic syndromes, such as type 2 diabetes (TIIDM), a global epidemic and one of the major challenges to human health in the 21st century.
