Bettina Rass

PhD program "Genetics, Epigenetics and Genomics"


Department of Pediatrics I, Medical University of Innsbruck, Innrain 66, A-6020 Innsbruck

Hello, 

My name is Bettina. I am a PhD student at the Department of Pediatrics I and I am working in the lab of Prof. Michael Ausserlechner. I studied Molecular Medicine here at the Medical University of Innsbruck and after finishing the master program in September 2016 I decided to stay for my PhD. I am now focusing on the transcription factor FOXO3 and the modulation of its interaction with the DNA by small molecules, mainly in 2D and 3D neuroblastoma cell culture models.

Hi!

My name is Sebastian Peer and I am working at Gottfried Baier´s lab, studying molecular mechanisms in cancer with knockout mice. After studying Biology at the LFU Innsbruck and completing my master thesis on macrophages (also in the cell genetics lab), I am now focusing (since October 2014) as a PhD student on the role of T-cells in cancer. Since October 2015 I am also representing the PhD students in the senate of the MUI, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! :)
