Martina Reutzel (neé Heinrich) holds a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in chemistry. For her Ph.D. she is currently doing research on olive polyphenols for the prevention of dementia in frame of the BMBF-KMU project NeurOliv. Moreover, she is doing research on the cognitive effects of human milk oligosaccharides in close cooperation with Dr. Clemens Kunz, human nutrition, Universitiy of Gießen. For her Ph.D. she uses Real-time PCR (RT-PCR) in order to investigate the molecular changes in neuronal cell and mouse models during aging.

Methods:   qRT-PCR, behaviour tests, determination of mitochondrial function ex vivo, Western Blot
