#06 - Biochemist Dr. Annita Louloupi (BIMSB MDC): unlocking secrets of RNA, dealing with overwork, and dancing for body and mind

In the sixth episode of Marthe Vogt Podcast we are welcoming biochemist Dr. Annita Louloupi – the winner of this year’s Marthe Vogt Award, presented annually by the FVB to an outstanding early-career woman scientist, active in a field covered by one of the FVB's institutes.

In this interview, Annita tells about the main results of her doctoral thesis, reflects on her time as a doctoral student, shares how she dealt with an overwhelming workload and what lessons she learned from it.


Annita Louloupi studied biology at the University of Crete and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Amsterdam. She has completed her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG). Currently, she works at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association, where she is involved in several different projects that revolve around post-transcriptional gene regulation.
