New Associate Professor at DynaMo

Associate Professor Meike Burow is the first person to be hired at DynaMo. Meike started at DynaMo on 1 January 2012, the same day the center was initiated.

As a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jena, Germany, Meike investigated the glucosinolate-myrosinase system as model system for plant chemical defences from a mechanistic as well as a functional perspective. She envisages to combine her background on chemical ecology, protein biochemistry and plant genetics to unravel molecular mechanisms plants use to adjust to the ever-changing environment they encounter.

Meike is one of the four DynaMo Partners and is member of the DynaMo Board. At DynaMo she will oversee research on pathway-specific regulation and interactomics. Meike is PhD supervisor for Morten Emil Møldrup, Tonni Grube Andersen and Lea Møller Jensen.
