Germán G. Leparc, post-doctoral fellow

Germán worked with us on gene and spliceform prediction, microarray probe design, and the analysis of next generation sequencing data, such as RNA-Seq expression profiles – publications (while with the group)

He is now looking for potential drug-targets at Boehringer Ingelheim, Biberach an der Riss, Germany.

Ulrike Mückstein, post-doctoral fellow

Ulrike applied her background in modelling thermodynamics and kinetics of nucleic acid interactions to improving our understanding of the machanisms of microarray hybridization – publications (while with the group)

2. 11. 1969 – 8. 10. 2010

Gabriela Koskova, post-doctoral fellow

Gabriela studied advanced models for time course analysis.

She has since returned to the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava.

Smriti Shridhar, pre-doctoral fellow

Smriti worked on modelling of interactions in microRNA and gene expression and validation of predicted targets. – publications (while with the group)

Thomas Tüchler, pre-doctoral fellow

Thomas worked on quantitative analyses and models, such as the deduction of labelling bias from quantitative gel images – publications (while with the group)

He is now responsible for the control of fermentation processes in drug production at Baxter Austria.

Anaïs Bardet, pre-doctoral fellow

Anaïs worked with us on a number of sequence analysis projects – publications (while with the group)

After obtaining a PhD while working for the Stark group at IMP, she is continuing her resereach as a PostDoc in Schübeler Group at FMI.
