Tabea Nimz

Advanced Research Assistant


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

Tabea joined the Gene Editing Team as Advanced Research Assistant in February 2020. In collaboration with colleagues in Cellular Operations and Stem Cell informatics, the team supports and delivers gene editing projects, such as engineering bespoke cell lines

Tabea completed her Bachelor studies at the University of Göttingen (Prof. Peter Burfeind lab) with a thesis project investigating the role of cycline D in prostate cancer using inducible knockdown systems. During her subsequent Master in Molecular Biosciences with Major in Cancer Biology at the University of Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Center she rotated at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston (Dr. Stephanie Dougan lab) studying polarization of BMDMs in prostate cancer. In her final thesis project performed at the National Center for Tumor Diseases Heidelberg (Prof. Hanno Glimm lab) she established and functionally characterized CRC spheroids containing an inducible knockdown or CRISPR-mediated knockout of different metabolism-related genes.
