HR news – two biologists have been providing support for project management at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH since February
(Stuttgart) – Two more biologists – Jana Fesseler and Nina Zabel – are now providing support for project management at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. The company, which promotes economic development in the life sciences industry, recently secured numerous new projects, which has resulted in it having to increase its workforce significantly. Among other things, BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has taken on the role of coordinator in the joint APRONA project and is the German lead partner for the Interreg project Codex4SMEs.
A „flexible robot-based platform for automated production of nanoparticles“ is to be developed within the next two and a half years. A transnational network is also being set up to drive forward the development of companion diagnostics along the entire value chain of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME). However, APRONA and Codex4SMEs are just two of the projects that BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has recently procured. „To successfully implement both these and other national and international projects, it was urgently necessary to expand the workforce,“ explains Managing Director Dr. Klaus Eichenberg. „I’m delighted we’ve been able to expand our team so expertly with Jana Fesseler and Nina Zabel. But if things continue to develop in this way, we’ll probably have to allow for even more hires.“
Fesseler and Zabel, both biologists (M.Sc.), started their work in Stuttgart in February 2018.
Jana Fesseler (27) completed a degree in biosciences at the University of Kaiserslautern, which she rounded off with a bachelor thesis on bioprocess engineering and technology. For her subsequent master’s degree in biotechnology, she transferred to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where she focused on the manufacture of bio-based products from renewable raw materials for the industrial biotechnology sector.
Nina Zabel (27) studied biology at the University of Hohenheim. During a practical semester at Greiner Bio-One GmbH, she gained an insight into the development process for products destined for specific applications in medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological research and wrote her thesis in Hohenheim at the Institute for Membrane Physiology in collaboration with Greiner Bio-One GmbH. During this, she characterised magnetic nanoparticles and investigated their influence on cellular parameters.
