She fell in love with those beating cardiomyocytes and has never got tired of watching them under the microscope. While studying the molecular mechanisms governing the process of myocardial remodeling, she gained expertise in handling several mouse and cell culture models. Afterwards, she joined Professor Peter Rehling’s group at Universitätsmedizin Göttingen as a postdoctoral research scientist to broaden her horizons.
She continued her zest to unveil various metabolic regulations underlying cardiac abnormalities. During this time she was also successful in generating CRISPR-Cas mediated patient mutation mouse models of cardiac diseases.
Other than science, she enjoys experimenting in her second laboratory at home – her kitchen. Likewise, she thinks with the right set of weapons (brushes, colors, imagination and music), she can conquer the world, but will still lose to her “mini me” – her lovely daughter.
