I enjoy being able to see the processes of life unfold in real time. Much like a painting, sculpture, building or another form of art, it empowers us, as an audience, to understand and emphasise with the subject matter. Developing imaging methods across the full scale of biological organisation allows us to consciously and mindfully consume the inner workings of biology, from proteins to whole organisms.

Postdoctoral Scholars

Dr Maaike Welling

Postdoctoral Scholar - D-BSSE ETH

Maaike Welling received her PhD from Utrecht University in the Netherlands where she studied pluripotency and early germ cell development in the group of Prof. Niels Geijsen at the Hubrecht Institute. After graduating she started working as a postdoc in the group of Prof. Periklis Pantazis at the D-BSSE to investigate the emergence of asymmetry in the early mouse embryo. Maaike is currently continuing this project in the group of Prof. Mustafa Khammash in Basel and is also still actively involved with new projects in the Pantazis lab.

PhD Student - D-BSSE ETH

Fascinated by the Paul Gauguin's master painting "D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous (Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?)", I am interested in studying the history and predicting the outcome of cells in various biological and pathological processes, such as cellular contribution and lineage in development, tissue regeneration, tumor formation, etc. Good research depends on the usage of the right tool. Scientist and engineers must sharpen their tools before kicking off. I work on developing the right tools to explore the vast biological and pathological world.

PhD Student - ICL

The intricacy of developmental processes has been getting me mesmerised throughout the years of my undergraduate studies. The innovative progress in top-notch precision live imaging techniques lights greatly the complex processes of development and disease. Revealing in depth the nature of living demands thinking with the eyes and seeing with the brain, as Daniel Mazia has suggested. But, of course, that’s the beauty and the challenge of this enchanting field.
