Impact of environment and way of living
Barbara Munz studied Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Chemistry at the Universities of Stuttgart, Tübingen and LMU München and graduated with a Master’s Degree in Biochemistry in 1994. She did her Ph.D. at LMU Munich and in Sabine Werner’s lab at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, where she worked on the molecular mechanisms of wound repair. Starting in 1999, she did a three-year postdoc at Helen Blau’s lab in Stanford, focusing on skeletal muscle regeneration. After a further postdoc in Walter Birchmeier’s group at MDC Berlin, she started her own lab at the Charité. Since then, she has been focusing on the molecular mechanisms that control skeletal muscle plasticity, specifically in response to physical exercise and training. As of today, she is head of the “Skeletal Muscle Plasticity Lab” at the Department of Sports Medicine of University Medicine Tübingen. Within the last few years, transducing the results of basic research into practical implications in the context of a healthy lifestyle has been one of her major goals.
