Dr. rer. nat. at Biochemical Institute, Medical Faculty, University of Kiel

Location: Kiel Germany

Dr. Friederike Zunke obtained her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry at the University of Kiel (Kiel, Germany) and master’s degree in biomedical sciences at the St. George’s University (London, UK). She then performed her PhD studies at the Biochemical Department at the University of Kiel focusing on lysosomal storage disorders, which she succesfully completed in October 2015. She then did her postdoctoral training at Northwestern University, where she worked with iPSCs to uncover mechanistics of GCase activity and glucosylceramide accumulation in alpha-synuclein aggregation processes. She is now independent group leader in the Biochemical Department at the University of Kiel, where she is part of a research consortium further focussing on the molecular pathways of Parkinson’s disease.
