Dr. Tina Micksch studied chemistry at TU Dresden with a focus on biochemistry. During her studies, she spent four months as a student assistant in the group of Prof. Dr. Carsten Werner at the Max-Bergmann-Center in Dresden, where she investigated the binding of peptides by self-assembly of thiols on gold surfaces. She also spent two months as a student assistant in the group of Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Knölker, where she studied the synthesis, purification and characterization of sugars and steroids. In her bachelor thesis in the group of Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz van Pée she investigated the inhibition of tumor growth by a mussel extract, and in her master thesis, the synthesis and characterization of BMP-2 conjugated with oligonucleotide strands for the functionalization of titanium-based implant materials.
In 2011, she started her PhD in the group of Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz van Pée. In her PhD thesis, she focused on the functionalization of titanium and zirconium oxide based implant materials using peptide-nucleic acid conjugates.
After completing her PhD thesis, Tina started working as a patent professional in the patent law firm Kailuweit & Uhlemann in 2015. She supports our patent attorneys mainly in the fields of chemistry and biochemistry, in searches, in making enquiries, in particular novelty searches and freedom-to-operate assessments, in the application of patents and utility models up to their grant.
Tina is European Patent Attorney and employed with our patent law firm in this function.
Her working languages are German and English.
