Laura studied Biochemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena. During that time, she got interested in Cell Biology and subsequently did a PhD at the Leibniz Institute on Aging, where she worked on identifying disease-causing mechanisms of a rare neurodegenerative disorder to potentially find druggable targets. Therefore, Dewpoint Therapeutics’ approach to translate biomolecular condensate biology into disease treatments fascinates her.

Outside of work, Laura enjoys travelling, reading thrilling crime novels and spending time with her cat.
