Current research

As part of my PhD in the research group of Margit Egg I am working on the impact of low- frequency magnetic fields on mammalian cells. The focus is set on the circadian rhythm and its intimate interaction with the hypoxic signaling pathway, as well as on the examination of the underlying quantum biological mechanisms.
