Management Team

Your strong partners to realize your aptamer project

Prof. Dr. Günter Mayer, Director of the Center of Aptamer Research and Development

Günter Mayer is a full professor of Chemical Biology & Chemical Genetics. After three years of founding and running NascaCell Technologies AG, an aptamer biotech company, he continued his academic career in Bonn and Glasgow (UK). He is a consultant to various companies in the life science sector and since 2010 tenured professor at the University of Bonn. He currently explores the broad applicability of aptamers for basic research as well as for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Prof. Mayer has a long-term (>20 year) experience in the development of aptamer selection strategies for small molecules, proteins, and whole cell targets and in the field of aptamer-based applications.

 

Dr. Amir Nasiri, Senior Scientist / Project Coordinator of the Center of Aptamer Research and Development

Dr. Amir Nasiri studied Biology and received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Frankfurt where he worked on setting up an RNA laboratory, the large scale production of RNA aptamers and the analysis of aptamer-ligand interactions using a wide range of biochemical and biophysical methods. During his postdoc at the DKTK (Deutsches Konsortium für Translationale Krebsforschung), he deepened his knowledge in protein expression and purification techniques by investigating clinically relevant MAP- and tyrosine-kinases. His strong scientific expertise in combination with his know-how in project management makes him a strong partner supporting the development of aptamers.

 

Dr. Marcus Menger, Head of the Functional Nucleic Acid-Aptamer at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology

Dr. Marcus Menger has been leading the aptamer working group at RiNA GmbH (Berlin) for 10 years and has a long-standing experience in the aptamer research field. Currently he is head of the ‘Functional Nucleic Acid-Aptamer’ laboratory at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology in Potsdam, Germany. Dr. Menger has a longstanding experience in aptamer generation, functionalization and application. As your partner, Dr. Menger offers his expertise in the semi-automated process development for the selection of your aptamer.

Stefan Künne, Technician & Labmanager

Stefan Künne has been successfully working for many years with Aptamers as the Lab Manager for the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Günter Mayer. Prior to specialising in SELEX, he has worked in a wide variety of scientific fields. Previously, Stefan has worked in both primary research biochemical, pharmaceutical, medical and biological laboratories, as well as in private industry as the Head of the Molecular biology and Immunology Department at LaboVet GmbH, a Veterinary Medical Diagnostics company in Austria. With his extensive knowledge of various techniques and methods, including laboratory management and work safety officer responsibilities, Stefan is a crucial member of the CARD.
