Gita Naseri

Principal Investigator

Gita received her Ph.D. in synthetic biology from Potsdam University, Germany. She embarked on her PostDoc research journey at the Institute for Chemistry at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. In 2021, she joined Marc Erhardt's laboratory at the Institute for Biology, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Since then, she has been working as a PostDoc at Emmanuelle Charpentier’s laboratory at MPUSP and Marc Erhardt’s laboratory at the Institute for Biology of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Gita Naseri’s work has been recognized by several awards, including the NNPDF Fellowship award from the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (USA) and the Go-Bio initial funding program of the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF, Germany). Gita received an Emmy Noether grant from the DFG for her Independent Research Group at the Institute of Biology at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
