Marion Cremer

Marion Cremer holds a medical degree with specialization in human genetics.

1979 - 1996: research associate at the Instiute of Human Genetics, Univ. of Heidelberg, involved in genetic counseling and in charge of a DNA lab for the diagnosis of neuro-muscular disorders, with special focus on the analysis of X-inactivation patterns in manifesting carriers of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

1997 – 2016 senior research associate in the group of Thomas Cremer at the Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich, Germany (since 2004 Biocenter of LMU). Research activities focus on the comparative analyses of a functional nuclear architecture (higher-order 3D genome organization) in different cell types and during differentiation mainly based on methods of 3D-FISH, immunocytochemistry, live cell observation and fluorescence microscopy including super-resolution microscopic approaches (3D structured illumination microscopy).

2015: Award of the "Wilhelm Bernhard Medal" together with Thomas Cremer for their joint contributions on genome structure and function.
