Ines Kiemann, born in 1989, studied biosciences in Bachelor program at the University of Münster from 2012 to 2015. Afterwards, she graduated the Master program there, too. Thereby, she focused on microbiology. She investigated the posttranslational glycosylation of virulence-associated surface proteins in the medically relevant pathogen Staphylococcus aureus in her master thesis, which she wrote at the university hospital in Münster.
In “FlüGe” project, Ines Kiemann will take a closer look at the diversity and the genetical dynamics of Staphylococcus aureus isolates, that were isolated from nasal swabs of refugees. Her dissertation is mentored by Prof. Dr. Karsten Niehaus.
Topic: 1.2 Correlation between refugees' movement and the migration of bacterial pathogens
