Postdoctoral Fellow:  Harvard University
Postdoctoral Fellow: Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine
Ph.D.: Humboldt University Berlin, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine
Diploma in Biology, Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Germany

Fields of Interest:

  • Molecular Medicine & Human Genetics

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease


Research Interests:

Inter-chromosomal interactions between different chromosomes drive gene regulation, but their molecular mechanisms remain elusive. To better understand biology and etiology of disease, the Maass lab focuses on inter-chromosomal interactions, especially of the noncoding genome, that impact development and disease mechanisms in a bedside-to-bench approach.
