Jenny Braasch 

Jenny Braasch has been working as a technical assistant at the Department of Cell Toxicology at the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research since January 2018. Her tasks include the cultivation of human and mammalian cells, the implementation of cell-based reporter gene bioassays and their establishment on the robot platform.

After her apprenticeship as a medical-technical laboratory assistant in Erfurt, Jenny worked for three years in Lübeck. There she has gained many experiences in the "Research and Development Department for Molecular Biology" in the field of cloning, cell culture, protein expression and immunological detection methods. Afterwards Jenny studied biochemistry at the University of Leipzig. She completed her studies in 2016 with a masterthesis on "short-range Dkk1 gradients as a model of paracrine cell signals". She then worked as a research associate at the University of Leipzig at the Institute of Life Sciences in the field of "Development of Cellular in vitro Microenvironments". After a brief excursion into the histological routine work (Institute of Pathology), she made it to the UFZ.
