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 cells at nanometre-resolution and create 3D reconstructions of entire cells, including their organelles and the respective contact sites. Yeast cells 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 departmental, faculty and central level:
- Lundberg Safety Group and NDR representative – CMB PhD council
- Chair – NDR
- Secretary – GUDK
