WHO ARE WE?

DIANA PAULY

PROF. DR. RER. NAT.

Immunologist by training
Research manager and mentor by duty

I studied humanbiology at the University in Greifswald. For my PhD and first postDoc years I enjoyed Berlin and joined the research community at the Robert Koch-Insitute. I got in touch with experimental ophthalmology during my time at the university of Regenburg.

PROJECT

SciFiMed, Complement and RPE, Complement in NMOSD

(in Regensburg: Complement gene therapy, POCT-NeutCov)

FUN FACT

In the morning at least two coffees are needed (three result in a coffee flash).

SUPERPOWER

ELISA development and antibody expertise

VERONIKA EHINGER

M.SC.

Project coordinator

After my M.Sc. (Cell Biology and Physiology) at the Goethe University in Frankfurt and the master thesis at the Eye Clinic in Mainz on the development of a porcine retinal explant model, I worked at the University Marburg as a research assistant (Molecular Cell Physiology, Prof. Bogdan) and project manager (3R-SMART, Dr. Linklater). I started my scientific project manager career in 2019 at the SPP2127 (JLU Gießen) and joined SciFiMed as a project coordinator and the Pauly laboratory in Marburg in 2021.

PROJECT

SciFiMed & lab organisation

FUN FACT

I really really try to remember things without writing them down – with little success. If you see me without my notebook, something is wrong!

SUPERPOWER

Juggling many projects in parallel without losing control.

Finding information on the internet – fast.

Baking brownies.

PRATITI BANERJEE

PHD

Post-Doctoral Researcher

I did my B.Sc. in Biotechnology from University of Burdwan, India and have a M.Sc in Medical Biotechnology from School of Tropical Medicine, India. I received my doctoral degree from Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India where I worked to develop a biomarker based predictive model for early detection of degeneration in Multiple Sclerosis.

HANNAH WOLF

M.SC.

PhD Student

I studied Biology and specialised in experimental neuroscience at the University of Regensburg. My passion for Complement and NMOSD came to life during an internship and my master thesis at Prof. Pauly's lab. I worked on the characterisation of a retinal explant cultivation system and investigated the role of complement in NMOSD-IgG dependent retinal degeneration. I am very excited to continue my research in Marburg.
