Verena Grimm, Dr. rer. nat.

"By participating at the trinational study course of the École supérieure de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg, I was able to gain first international study experience. After graduating with a diploma thesis in the area of Virology and Gene Therapy at the University of Michigan, I developed a DNA microarray for rapid antibiotic resistance detection during my doctorate at the Institute of Technical Biochemistry in Stuttgart. The following ten years I worked in the product and marketing management in the field of diagnostics at Greiner Bio-One GmbH, which produces multiplex analytical methods for use in food safety, human diagnostics and product safety in the pharmaceutical industry. Starting January 2017 at the BioRegio STERN Management GmbH, I will use my international experience in the development, application and marketing of biotechnological methods to network, attend and support companies in the medtech and biotech industry in the region. As project manager I support the regional companies’ prospects for automated applications and the development of new products."

„I completed my master’s degree in biology at the University of Hohenheim. During my internship at Greiner Bio-One GmbH, I gained a working knowledge of the operations of the various departments in the company. This gave me an understanding of the entire development process of products for specific applications in medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological research and industry. Afterwards, I wrote my thesis at the Institute for Membrane Physiology in collaboration with Greiner Bio-One GmbH. During this time, I characterised magnetic nanoparticles, which represent a model system for creating 3D cell cultures, and investigated their influence on cellular parameters. Since February 2018, I have been working at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH, where I support the project management team on national projects.“
