picture of Lynette

Lynette Fulton (12/2003 - 06/2011).
An Australian postdoc who was instrumental in the isolation and molecular characterization of additional components of the SUB pathway. In addition, she essentially managed the lab. After a long stay she and her family moved back to Melbourne, where she joined the lab of Sureshkumar Balasubramanian at the Dept. of Biological Sciences, Monash University. Her email address is lynette.fulton@monash.edu

Jin Picture

Jin Gao (09/2014 - 02/2019).

Maxi Oelschner

Maxi Oelschner (06/2009 - 03/2012).
An excellent technician and the soul of the lab. Unfortunately for us she decided that four hours commute a day is too much for her... At the time of this writing she worked for a research lab in the hospital of her home town Regensburg

Janys Pleßmann

Jany Pleßmann (06/2012 - 02/2017).
A hardworking PhD student who did a detailed study on UCN genetics. After his stay with us he moved on to work with Eurofins.

picture of Karen

Karen Pfister (02/2003 - 06/2008).
A graduate student out of TU Dresden. She worked on the SRF family of receptor kinases.

picture of Antje

Antje Redweik (09/1995 - 03/1999).
An excellent former technician. She went on to a lab in Canada, returned to Zurich and, at the time of this writing we have lost track of her.

picture of Maja

Maja Schellenberg (03/1999 - 06/2002).
An excellent technician and the heart of the lab. Unfortunately, she choose to stay at the Institute of Plant Biology, University of Zurich rather than move with us to Munich in June 2002.

picture of Uschi

Uschi Schiefthaler (01/1998 - 02/2001).
