My Life and Science Blog
Welcome to my blog about life and science. I’m Felix and I want to talk about my work, ending cancer and aging as well as all the unpleasant things associated with it and about trying to get my PhD. I also share some stories and photos of another thing I love: Travelling and nature.
- Show me your Telomeres and I can tell your (remaining) AgeIn my PhD project I’m developing a drug screening platform that can find molecules that modulate Telomere length. Here’s a short explanation how.
- How to Stop the ClockCan we slow or even reverse aging? Let me tell you how to gain more than 10 extra years and explain how far away we are from actually beating age.
- Transforming Yeast or how to make a GMOIf you ever wanted to know how to change genes this is for you. I’m explaining the total basics of evil science: Transforming yeast cells by getting them to integrate foreign DNA.
I’m a scientist at HTW Berlin. I work in the field of Telomere biology and aging. My project and topic for my PhD thesis is to develop an easy assay to make Telomere length visible.
I’m also also a father and husband. Interested in entrepreneurship, crypto and ethical investment, diving, travelling and photography.
