Technical Expertise: Cell- and Molecular Biology, Neurobiology, Immunology, Genetics, Biochemistry
Dr. Claudia Scheerer has been active in the field of intellectual property since 2016, where she started her training as patent attorney and joined ZSP in 2020.
Her area of practice is in the drafting and prosecution of European, and international patent applications in the field of cell- and molecular biology, neurobiology, immunology, genetics and biochemistry.
Dr. Scheerer was born in Mexico, where she visited the German school, having the opportunity to grow up bilingual. After finishing her Mexican and German Abitur in Mexico, she studied biology at the Heinrich-Heine Universität of Düsseldorf and completed her diploma thesis under the direction of Prof. Oliver Brüstle and Prof. Sandra Blaess at the Life&Brain Center in the University of Bonn with an emphasis on neurodevelopmental genetics in the mouse brain. During her Ph.D. at the Charité Berlin, she studied the neuroimmunomodulatory mechanisms occurring in chronic inflammatory diseases in the lab of Prof. Sylvia Mechsner.
After her PhD, she worked on the analysis of specific immunologic mechanisms in the pathogenesis of endomentriosis as part of a postdoc-cooperation project with Bayer.
For her work, Dr. Scheerer received scholarships from the Freunde und Förderer der Berliner Charité e.V., the FAZIT Foundation, as well as awards from the International association for the study of pain (IASP) and the International Society of Gynecological Endocrinology. Dr. Scheerer is a member of the IASP, the Society for Developmental Biology (GfE) and the Association for Biology, Biosciences & Biomedicine in Germany (VBio).
