Hi, I am Abubakar. I have recently finished my MSc in Molecular life science at Friedrich Schiller University, Jena. During the time span of my masters, I worked six months as a student research assistant in Prof. Dr. Gershezon’s Lab at the Max Planck Institute of Chemical Ecology, Jena. For my master’s thesis, I moved to the German cancer research center (Dkfz), Heidelberg in Dr. Hombauer’s lab. In my master’s thesis, I studied the identification and characterization of Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) mutations due to dNTP imbalances. At the same time, I characterized human RRM1 mutant allele into Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I applied for the IMPRS for Molecular Life Sciences Ph.D. program. After successfully passing the interview round, I started working in Sigurd’s lab. In my free time, I enjoy being out in nature, spending time with friends and cooking.
What the Braun Lab says about Abubakar:
“When you see alu foil covering his bench, you know there is science happening!”
“Talks even faster than Lucia!”
