Life After PhD
Join us for the next event from the popular serie Life After PhD, this time with Dr. Radhika Patnala (PhD) and Dr. Arne Fabritius. Radhika and Arne are young inspiring science couple from Munich, who came to CEITEC to share with us their story of young PhD holders who used their love for science and passion for design to create a life science start-up Sci-Illustrate.
Radhika is young neuroscientists, founder and creative director of Sci-Illustrate. She has trained for over a year in Brand Strategy Design Consultancy with a creative agency in California and a leader in Brand Strategy & Design. Before the conception of Sci-Illustrate, Dr. Patnala received her doctorate in Neuroscience as Validictorian from the National University of Singapore, and a Masters in Biotechnology (Research) from The Australian National University. She has over 8 years of bio-medical research experience, with expertise in neuroscience, immunology, epigenetics and cancer biology. With an eclectic skill-set ranging from graphic design to motion graphics, she puts creative & scientific teams together to assist the life-science research and healthcare community with their design needs.
Arne is neuroscientist and protein engineer, as well as scientific advisor in Sci-Illustrate. He received his doctorate from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, for his research in protein engineering at Max Plank Institute of Neurobiology. He is a recipient of the prestigious IMPRS Graduate Fellowship and The Young Scientist Award 2018 from the Max Plank Institute of Neurobiology.He is passionate about scientific innovation in any form, be it engineering, robotics, machine learning to biotechnology and protein engineering. Dr. Fabritus is motivated by using design to solve communication problems, and holds years of expertise in scientific illustration and visual communication.
