Jasmin Taubenschmid-Stowers

Jasmin obtained her doctoral degree from the University of Vienna, and the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology – IMBA. In her PhD project, she used genome-wide screening systems in haploid stem cell to investigate toxins and compound mechanisms-of-action to functionally annotate cellular pathways.

Jasmin joined the Reik Group in October 2019 as an EMBO Postdoctoral Long-Term Fellow and a Charles and Katherine Darwin Research Fellow. Her project involves targeted genome engineering of embryonic stem cells in combination with single-cell methods to study transcriptional and epigenetic processes of mammalian zygotic genome activation in vitro.
