Together with Mechthild Krabusch, I am responsible for our fly facility. I take care of our fly stocks, e.g., I am preparing the good food for our flies. Healthy flies are essential for the research in our group. The current fly facility houses more than 3000 different Drosophila stocks. I am also responsible for running our lab kitchen with the autoclave, washers and labware dishwashers.

I am working together with Heiko Harten in supporting the SERCA and Neprilysin research projects. If someone in the lab is in need to order antibodies, chemicals or other labware, ask me, I am responsible for contacting companies and ordering.

My expertise is histology and transmission electron microscopy. I like to work with the Zeiss 902 and Zeiss Leo microscopes. I am supporting several research projects in the lab by preparing tissue for embedding. Probes were sectioned with an Ultracut, for example, and analysed ultrastructurally with one of the electron microscopes.

Together with Martina Biedermann I am heading our fly facility. To keep the flies healthy is often not easy: day/night rhythm, good food, humidity, protection against parasites - all this has to be taken into account. I am also responsible for ordering new fly stock and to keep them in quarantine. I am always happy when our new bachelor and master students ask for some help when working with flies.

I have a long-standing interest in microscopy. If something goes wrong with the microscopes in our teaching classes, I am the person to talk with. My expertise is the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM, REM), but I am also familiar with, e.g., the Zeiss 902 TEM. I am responsible for teaching new bachelor and master students how to prepare probes for TEM analysis and to capture excellent images with the TEM. Finally, I am preparing media for use in our laboratory.
