Prof. Andrea Rentmeiste

Leader of Rentmeister Lab- Biomolecular Label Chemistry

Professor of Biological Chemistry and Biomolecular Label Chemistry, Institute of Biochemistry, WWU Münster; competed in the women's individual épée event at the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Research in the Rentmeister group focuses on RNA at the interface of chemistry and biochemistry. The aim is to understand the mechanisms and ultimately control the processes affecting mRNA expression and turnover. To this end chemical tools for manipulation, analysis, and control of mRNA are being developed at the molecular level and implement them in living cells and in vivo.
