Ute Koeber


I am interested in using the tools of synthetic biology to explore neural stem cell regulators and how they are disrupted in glioblastoma. This way I hope to identify new drugs that target glioblastoma at the transcriptional level. I did my undergraduate studies in biochemistry in Tuebingen, Germany and my master studies in Molecular Life Science in Jena, Germany with my final thesis focussing on the role of vitamin A in muscle stem cells in the Rudolph Lab at the Leibniz Institute on Aging / Fritz Lipmann Institute. During my master programme I had the chance to broaden my scientific knowledge during an internship at the Harvard Department for Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology in the Rubin Lab.
