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.

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.
