After completing an apprenticeship as biological lab technician, Jasmin studied Biochemistry at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. She found her passion for cellular stress responses during a three-month internship in Peter Walter’s lab at University of California, San Francisco. Jasmin obtained her PhD from Heidelberg University, where she joined the laboratory of Sebastian Schuck at the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University (ZMBH). During her thesis work, she investigated a stress-induced microautophagic pathway for selective degradation of endoplasmic reticulum and demonstrated the involvement of the ESCRT machinery. Jasmin joined the Münch lab in the beginning of 2020 as a postdoctoral researcher to study the mitochondrial unfolded protein response.
