Research Associate, Fraunhofer IME Screening Port, HamburgBiography
Maria Kuzikov studied Molecular Life Science at the University of Lübeck. She worked on the development of inhibitors targeting virus replication at the Department of Biochemistry of University of Lübeck and on assay development for studying protein-protein interactions at the European ScreeningPort. After obtaining her Master of Science degree in 2013, Maria continued to work at European ScreeningPort (now Fraunhofer IME ScreeningPort) and was responsible for development of cell-based and biochemical assays in High Throughput Screening (HTS) formats, as well as High Content Assays and early ADME-Tox profile studies. This work includes the analysis of ion channels, P450 enzymes and G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) as well as cell lines and primary cells throughout all stages of HTS using numerous assay formats like luminescence, IF, label-free, proximity-ligation or TR-FRET.
