Inmates - 2017: Still Setting Up New Lab at Freie Universitaet Berlin...

Peter Robin Hiesinger

Robin did his undergraduate and graduate studies in genetics, computational biology and philosophy (totally shows) at the University of Freiburg in Germany. He then did his postdoc at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and was Assistant Professor and Associate Professor with tenure for more than 8 years at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. After 15 years (!!!) in Texas and a life with no fast food, no TV, no gun and no right to vote, he is currently bewildered by his new home, Berlin, Germany.
