Dr. Nicole Hansmeier
Dr. Nicole Hansmeier joined Luther College in July 2018. Nicole is originally from Diestedde. She received her Diploma and Ph.D. in Biology from Bielefeld University, Germany. She then joined the Arizona State University, USA before heading to Osnabrueck, Germany.
Her current research focuses on the system biological understanding of host-pathogen interactions and the use of multi-omics approaches to identify disease pathways or markers indicative of human health. Nicole served as a member of the editorial board of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and currently teaches Introductory Biology for non-biologist (Biol 150) and Medical Microbiology (BIOL 303).
