Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany
Andrea Volkamer received her Master degree in Bioinformatics from Saarland University in 2007. After a one year research stay at Purdue University (USA), she joint the group of Prof. Dr. M. Rarey at the ZBH, Hamburg. In 2013, she defended her PhD thesis with focus on computational druggability predictions. After a short ProExzellezia PostDoc period, she joint BioMedX Innovation Center in Heidelbergas a PostDoc researcher, where she has been working on tools to assist the development of selective kinase inhibitors. Since July 2016, Andrea Volkamer became an assistant professor at the Charité Berlin with the focus on in-silico toxicicology predictions.
