Patrick Penndorf

Hey there, glad you swing by ; )

My name is Patrick Penndorf, and I am deeply passionate about sharing science and promoting sustainability in research. As a science communicator, I find great joy in translating complex scientific concepts into accessible language that can be understood and appreciated by a wide audience. I believe that science should not be confined within the walls of laboratories and academic journals; it should be shared with the world to inspire curiosity and contribute to the betterment of society.

My academic background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry, and a double master degree in Molecular Medicine and Molecular Biology.

I am a proud founding member of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) Trainee Initiative (TI) and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) Junior Scientist (JS) program. We actively contribute to developing educational resources, organizing workshops, and fostering collaborations to enhance biochemistry and molecular biology education globally. This experience has deepened my understanding of effective science communication and educational strategies.

Throughout my academic journey, I have conducted research in various fields such as epigenetics, Neuroscience, Immunology. However, most passionately I pursue interdisciplinary approaches, especially in Neuroimmunology. My hands-on experience has not only expanded my knowledge in the subject but has also provided me with valuable insights into the scientific process, including data collection, analysis, and interpretation.

In addition to my academic pursuits, I am deeply committed to promoting sustainability in research. I believe that as scientists, we have a responsibility to conduct our work in an environmentally conscious manner. I actively participate in initiatives aimed at reducing laboratory waste, promoting recycling practices, and implementing energy-efficient measures. By integrating sustainability into my research practices, I hope to contribute to a more environmentally conscious scientific community.
