Welcome to Katharina!

My name is Katharina Huber and I joined the Fajas lab as a postdoctoral researcher in April 2019.

I received my Ph.D. in Molecular Biosciences and Biotechnology from Graz University of Technology, Austria. As a PhD student at Graz University of Technology and as a research scholar in the department of cancer biology at University of Pennsylvania, I studied metabolic pathways in the context of cancer and lipid metabolism. I gained expertise in disciplines including molecular biology, cellular and mouse genetics, metabolomics, epigenetics, and imaging methods.

During my postdoctoral research at the CIG, I will investigate the role of cell cycle regulators, such as E2F1 transcription factor or the upstream activator cyclin-dependent kinase 4 in cancer metabolism.
