M.Sc. Lion Raaz
Lion Raaz is a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in the group of Stefan Mundlos for Development and Disease, in close collaboration with Petra Knaus' group for Signal Transduction in the Biochemistry department of Freie Universität Berlin. Bridging the fields of chromatin organisation and cellular signalling allows him to follow his strong interest in the effects of mechanical forces on the regulation of cellular processes. While his master's studies in biophysics at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin provided him with the theoretical foundations, he developed his strong fascination in the field during his research in Viola Vogel's group for applied mechanobiology at ETH Zurich.
