The HIRI has an exhilarating cause to celebrate: on September 15, Franziska Wimmer successfully defended her doctoral dissertation. Franziska joined the HIRI in 2018. She conducted her doctoral project in the RNA Synthetic Biology research department with principal investigator and primary supervisor Chase Beisel. In the Beisel lab, she worked on alternative functions of CRISPR-Cas systems.
Franziska already holds a subsequent agreement: in July 2022, she started working as a project manager at a research company.
