Cindy was born and raised in the lovely city of Dresden. In her twenties she moved to Zittau where, besides studying molecular biotechnology, she started climbing and through it discovered the beautiful nature of the region as seen from the mountain peaks. During her Bachelor thesis research, she learned to appreciate the zebrafish as a model organism and jumped into the new era of genome editing with the world-changing CRISPR/Cas9 technology. Currently, Cindy is part of the Regenerative Biology and Medicine master program in the CRTD, which allows her to extend her practical skills and deepen the knowledge in rotations with different labs in Dresden. For the 2017 summer term, she joined the Vastenhouwlab, bringing her genome editing skills to our studies of nuclear architecture. In her free time, she loves outdoor activities andjam sessions with other musicians.
