Role within GHGA: Team member
Institution: Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum
Workstream: Outreach & Training, Project Management
An immunologist and wet lab researcher by training, I always enjoyed communicating science on all levels. Discussions with other scientists, engaging patients to participate in clinical studies and educating the interested public about science - even grant writing and compiling regulatory documents. Within GHGA, I want to use these skills to help with administration, regulatory documents and particularly the development of clear communication strategies. I firmly believe in internal and external communication as one key to successfully achieving GHGAs mission. Internally, smooth information flow will save time and engage members to actively participate. Outward focusing, GHGA can help educate and reduce the fears surrounding genome research in Germany.
