Meet Holger, research engineer

"Through my research in Protein Engineering I want to find solutions to help ill people get the right treatment more rapidly."

- I lead a research group in which we are trying to identify all the proteins in a human - and I must say that the ambition level of those working here is fantastic. Combine this with a great amount of freedom under responsibility and you have an environment with space for personal development and good fellowship at the workplace.
