Speakers: 
Sandra Söderholm earned her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Helsinki in 2016. In her thesis work, she investigated innate immune responses to Influenza A virus. After completing her PhD, she worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Professor Dirk Bumann’s laboratory at Biozentrum (University of Basel, Switzerland), where she studied Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus in clinical samples with mass spectrometry-based proteomics, to identify novel strategies to combat infectious disease and antibiotic resistance. She joined Sartorius as an Application Development Scientist in 2019.

Jennifer Labisch studied molecular biotechnology in Bielefeld and Frankfurt. She was a Sartorius scholarship holder during her master studies, and after her master thesis at Sartorius in Göttingen, she continued to work at Sartorius as a PhD student. She is working on downstream processing of lentiviral vectors. Her research includes clarification and analytics with a focus on steric exclusion chromatography.
