Biography

Joachim works in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University as a Senior Research Fellow.

Biography

In 1998 I graduated in Chemistry and Biology at the University of Cologne, Germany, and worked in the field of plant development at the Max-Delbrück-Laboratory during my two diplomas. I received my PhD from the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, where I analysed in the department of Peter Gruss the role of Pax6 in the development of the mouse brain. In 2003 I worked with Stephen Cohen at the EMBL for 6 month on drosophila, screening for growth deficient mutants. Since 2005 I am in the group of Peter Currie focusing on modeling Muscular Dystrophy in zebrafish, first at the Victor-Chang-Cardiac-Research-Institute in Sydney and since 2008 at the ARMI.
