Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Uhlenhaut's (*1977) research focuses on investigating gene regulatory mechanisms that mediate hormone responses. Latest genome-wide techniques are combined with preclinical models to find new therapeutic approaches for metabolic or inflammatory diseases (e.g. diabetes, asthma).
Prof. Uhlenhaut studied at the Technical University of Braunschweig and at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. She received her doctorate from EMBL in Heidelberg and, after postdoctoral research at the Salk Institute in San Diego and the MDC in Berlin, came to Helmholtz Zentrum München as group leader. She was also professor at the Gene Center of the LMU. In 2019, Prof. Uhlenhaut was appointed professor of 'Metabolic Programming' at the TUM.
