Biography

 

Corinna was born in Dingolfing, near Munich (Germany). She received both her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry, and her Master’s degree in Biochemistry from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Munich, Germany). During her Bachelor, she worked at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried (Germany) on flight muscle development in Drosophila in the group of Frank Schnorrer. During her Master studies, she completed several internships in biochemistry, virology, genetics, and neuroscience. She did her Master’s thesis at the University of Helsinki (Finland) in the laboratory of Ville Hietakangas. Here, she characterized the metabolic phenotype and identified downstream targets of clockwork orange, a novel transcription factor involved in the sugar-sensitive transcriptional network in Drosophila. In April 2020 she started at the Life Science Zurich Graduate School as a PhD student in the group of Francesca Peri at the University of Zurich.

In her free time, she enjoys reading, baking, handcrafting, and travelling.
