The future of personalized genomics
Manja Meggendorfer is the Head of Molecular Genetics at Munich Leukemia Laboratory (MLL), where she oversees various R&D activities such as the 5,000 genome project, which is aimed at better understanding the genetic factors behind leukemia. She received her Master of Science in Biology from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and her PhD. in collaboration with the Helmholtz Center Munich working on gene regulation within the architecture of the cell nucleus. After her post-doctorate, she moved to the field of hematology as a scientist in the department of molecular genetics at MLL. In combination with her MBA in Health Care Management, Manja hopes to improve the diagnostic and prognostic work associated with routine diagnostic approaches for leukemia or lymphoma patients.
