Jun Prof Neva Caliskan


Neva Caliskan studied molecular biology and genetics at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara (Turkey) and worked as a visiting scholar in 2005 at EMBL in Heidelberg. She received her Master's degree at the International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Biology (Göttingen) in 2009. After completing her PhD in 2013, she first worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Physical Biochemistry at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and then as a project leader at the same institute from 2015-2017. Since January 2018 she has been heading the junior research group "Recoding Mechanisms in Infections" at the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research (HIRI) in Würzburg. As of May 2018 she holds a junior professorship at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Würzburg.
