Carina Müller, MSc

Carina Müller is a doctoral student at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Vienna. Since September 2017, she joins the working group Pharmaceutical Analytic. Her current project involves MS-based neuroproteomics, where she focuses on the investigation of protein interaction partners of the dopamine transporter and its regulatory impact of the dopaminergic system in rat brain.

Carina studied Biology with focus on Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology at the Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen (Germany), where she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. She did her master thesis at the Department of Experimental Ophthalmology in Giessen in the field of gene editing, where she established a reporter system for the detection of CRISPR/Cas9-induced homology directed repair.

Carina is experienced in cell-culture work, standard molecular biology and biochemistry techniques like electrophoresis, PCR, Western blot, transfection, molecular cloning, DNA, RNA and protein purification, as well as CRISPR/Cas. Furthermore, she is trying to augment her skills in mass spectrometry and HPLC along with bioinformatics.
