Vanessa Tober, MSc

Scientific Associate

Research statement

My scientific interest lies in the area of epigenetics. The topic of the project, in which I am allowed to pursue my scientific work, deals with epigenetic modifiers in connection with EB. I find it very exciting to research how DNA methylation affects gene expression and what consequences this has on phenotype.


Personal interests

In my free time, I like to spend time with family and friends, whether it's mountain climbing or cycling. I also like to take part in obstacle courses with friends. It can also be an exciting book to switch off.
