Protein Production for Ubiquitin Reagents
I was born and raised in Germany, studied Biology at the University of Cologne and completed the degree and a PhD at a major research center (FZK) near Karlsruhe, Germany.
During my PhD, I met Prof Sir Philip Cohen, who invited me to join his lab as a postdoc. Hence, from 1998 -2002, I carried out research at the MRC-PPU, initially as a long term EMBO fellow. In 2002 I set up and run Kinasource Ltd, to commercialise some of the innovations resulting from this Post doc position. In 2008 I was invited back into the MRC PPU in order to set up and run a protein production and assay development team for ubiquitin related reagents. Our team provides an impressive portfolio of ubiquitin related reagents and research experience and we enjoy being able to contribute to the research efforts. I am proud to be part of such a powerful and creative team and we do our best to provide reagents at a high quality in a timely manner.
