Dr. Nena Matscheko is a senior scientist and currently leading the cell and antibody interactions research team at Dynamic Biosensors GmbH. The Munich-based biotech company develops instruments for biomolecular interaction analysis. Their proprietary switchSENSE® technology is marketed in Europe, US and Asia as a unique combination of size and interaction analysis tool.
Nena earned a degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Vienna, Austria (2010), which included a research stay at the department for gene therapy at the CIMA, Pamplona, Spain. She was selected for a Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds PhD fellowship as well as a member of the International Max Planck Research School for Life Sciences and finished her graduate studies on the topic of selective autophagy at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Munich, Germany in 2016. Nena gained extensive hands-on experience in the setup and analysis of complex kinetic measurements in biosensors, with a focus on DNA/RNA editing enzymes (helicases, polymerases, nucleases), and has developed automated Dose Response workflows for customers from both pharma and academia. Since the launch of the new heliX® biosensor (2019) she ventures to expand established biosensor applications for antibodies.
