“I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician, he is also a child place before natural phenomenon, which impress him like a fairy tale.” – Mary Curie
This quote from Mary Curie expresses much what I am feeling about science. Every time I learn something new, I am fascinated again by the complexity and diversity of the world we are living in. My playground is located in the field of Neuroscience with special focus on translational research. Currently, I am investigating possible treatment strategies for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at the Center for Translational Neurodegeneration Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Next to Neuroscience, I also have a wide interest in other fields including immunology and molecular biology and I always enjoy spotting new discoveries and interesting stories to share with others.
