Leonie Kurz

Leonie grew up in Stuttgart in the south of Germany and studied biochemistry in the beautiful medieval town Tübingen, where she worked on specificity profiling of sortase enzymes in Dirk Schwarzer’s lab. After an MSc. thesis in industry, working with Boehringer-Ingelheim in formulation development of therapeutic antibodies, she decided to come back to academia for her PhD. Ever since her time as an Erasmus student in Uppsala, Sweden, she loves bouldering, and she also dances Salsa with some other group members.
