About Katharina Keuenhof

I am interested in quantifying the changes that occur in sub-cellular structures during periods of environmental stress and ageing. Using my favourite method, electron microscopy – a high-resolution imaging technique – I analyse yeast and mammalian cells at nanometre-resolution and create 3D reconstructions of entire cells, including their organelles and the respective contact sites. Yeast cells for example are a popular model organism and research from that field can often be translated to other eukaryotes.

Additionally, I am involved in PhD councils at faculty, central and national level:

  • NDR – Chair and Faculty Board representative
  • GUDK – Vice-Chair
  • SFS-DK – Board Member
