Where we're from

We study at the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen which has plenty of course of studies in the Humanities and Sciences. It goes back to the 15th century and was home to many famous poets and thinkers.

  • Located in Tübingen is also the past laboratory of Friedrich Miescher in Schloss Hohentübingen where he discovered the nucleic acids (Nuclein) in 1868.
  • Nobel laureate Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard is Director at the Max-Planck-Institut für Entwicklungsbiologie (developmental biology), her work with Drosophila melanogaster and zebrafish Danio rerio greatly improved our present-day understanding of embryonal developement.

We come from the beautiful city of Tübingen, located in Southern Germany on the Neckar river. Tübingen is home to approx. 25,000 students, among the 85,000 citizens.
