      Dr. Hanae Henke is the content editor of Eppendorf Headquarter in Hamburg, Germany. She joined Eppendorf in 2015 as application specialist for liquid handling right after finishing her PhD in medical microbiology on the topic of S. epidermidis hip joint infections at the university hospital in Hamburg. Hanae focused on molecular biology and genetics early during her studies of Biology at the University of Hamburg and deepened her knowledge in food microbiology laboratories and at Harvard Medical School in the group of Prof. Roberto Kolter. A project management course in cooperation with Johnson & Johnson medical (Germany) extended Dr. Henke's skills in establishing trainings and giving seminars.
