Dipl. Chem. Karolin Pohle

Scientific co-worker

Karolin Pohle studied chemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena. Her diploma thesis was concerned with "Synthesis, characterisation and metal complexation of 2',3'- and 3',5'-diaminonucleoside derivatives". As a Marie-Curie fellow she then worked in the Laboratory for Biocatalysis and Organic Chemistry of the University of Delft. There she developed Ga(III)-chelators for the application in positron emission tomography in the frame of the Marie-Curie project "Molecular Recognition for Diagnosis and Therapy". Since 2009 she is continuing her research at the TU Munich in the frame of her doctoral thesis.
