Hi, I am Kathrin. I did my training as a laboratory assistant in the chemical industry and worked on quality management and process optimization. Later on, I attended the University of applied science and received a diploma degree in process and environmental engineering. In the pharmaceutical industry, I worked in medical diagnostics and was in charge of editing requests for diagnostic samples and the administration of a serum bank. I also worked in IT service as a sales representative as well as in agro- and environmental analysis in customer service, taking care of various tasks including customer consulting, handling of customer requests, or statistical evaluations. Before I joined the Department of Physiological Chemistry at the LMU in 2015, I completed an advanced training of a technical assistant for molecular biology and cell culture at the Berlin-Buch campus for six months. In the Braun Lab, I am responsible for the preparation of all liquid and solid growth media for yeast with different antibiotics that are used for genetic screens and SGA (synthetic genetic array) analysis.
What the Braun Lab says about Kathrin:
“Any media wishes? Write them on the board, and she’ll make them in a sway! SPECIAL wishes included 😉 “
“If you know HOW many screens we do, you’d know how many plates and pads she cleans for us!”
“Without Kathrin our lab would come to a grinding halt!”
