Dr. Stefan Hennig


VitaDr. Stefan Hennig

Dr. Stefan Hennig studied Molecular Biotechnology at Technische Universität Dresden. In his Bachelor thesis at the Institute of Genetics at TU Dresden he established synthetic biology modules for controlled cell-cell communication. In his PhD thesis he developed a protein-based surface functionalization technology to carry out novel immunoassays for specific peptides, and he applied this immunologic platform to develop yeast-based whole cell sensors for certain vitamins showing extremely low limits of detection. In his postdoc project he focused on the development of control elements for microbial consortia – based on synthetic cell-cell communication – for application in biotechnological processes. Since February 2019 he is working as a postdoc in the immunoassay group at Hahn-Schickard.
