Dr. Tina Micksch
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 assists our patent attorneys with the focus on client support, in making enquiries, in particular novelty searches and freedom-to-operate assessments, in the application of patents and utility models up to their grant. Her working languages are German and English.
