Dr. Claus D. Kuhn, University of Bayreuth.

Claus D. Kuhn, Principal Investigator
Claus is and always has been interested in understanding how RNAs and proteins interact and how these interactions bring about biological function. He is an X-ray crystallographer by training, yet is becoming more and more interested in next-gen sequencing applications to decipher the structures and functions of non-coding RNAs.

Vlada Gorbovytska, PhD Student, University of Bayreuth.

Vlada Gorbovytska, PhD Student
Vlada studied biochemistry in Bielefeld and Bayreuth and decided to enter the mysterious field of enhancer RNAs for her PhD. She is investigating their biological function by combining biochemistry, next-gen sequencing and structural biology.

Iana Kim, PhD Student, University of Bayreuth

Iana Kim, PhD Student
Iana studied biochemistry in Voronezh and Moscow (Russia) and joined our lab to become an expert in planarian flatworms. Using modern biochemistry paired with next-gen sequencing she investigates why planarian stem cells require a special class of small non-coding RNAs, so-called piRNAs, for their function.

Lisa-Marie Schneider, PhD Student
Lisa is interested in understanding the effect of neuronal enhancer RNAs on promoter-proximal pausing. For her work she combines "old-school" in vitro biochemistry with next-generation sequencing applications and work in zebrafish.
