Florian is now working for a consulting firm in Switzerland.

My postdoctoral work in the Silver lab focuses on engineering transcriptional networks in mammalian cells. I did my PhD in the group of Dirk Schübeler where I was studying the establishment of DNA methylation patterns and the dynamics of chromatin modifications and transcriptional regulation during stem cell differentiation.
