Cell scientist to watch - Sabine Petry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Originally from Germany, Sabine Petry received her Diploma (MSc) from Goethe University in Frankfurt and undertook her Master's thesis at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics. She then moved to the UK to pursue a PhD under the supervision of Venki Ramakrishnan at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. In 2008, Sabine started her postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Ron Vale at the University of California, San Francisco as an EMBO fellow and then an HHMI postdoctoral fellow of the Life Science Research Foundation. She started her own lab at Princeton University in 2013, and her work has already been recognised with an NIH Pathway to Independence K99/R00 Award and the Kimmel Scholar Award for Cancer Research; she was also named a Pew Scholar and Packard Fellow in 2014. Sabine's research combines structural, biophysical, biochemical and cell biology methods to study the mechanism by which microtubules build cellular structures, allowing cells to attain a particular shape and function.
