Mareike Wiedmannマライカ


日本学術振興会 特別研究員

City/country of origin
Braunschweig, Germany
Scuba diving and photography (both in the water and on land), traveling, reading, admiring all the beautiful Japanese tea pots in the shops and I can’t wait to explore more of Tokyo and Japan.
Places You Like
Scotland, South of France and Italy, Thailand, New Zealand and JAPAN!
Where for a big vacation
Exploring as much of Japan as possible! (and visiting families and friends in Germany and England)
What are your strong points?
I guess I don’t give up easily and am very organised.
What are people in the lab doing?
Operating lots of fancy machines, going for lunch in the cafeteria, discussing science, getting a snack from around the corner… having a good time!
What was surprising about the suga lab
How many people there are in the group, how many different labs there are and the incredible amount of equipment! ☺
Original motivation towards science?
Probably the first microscope I got during my childhood - and the desire to contribute to a better world.
A few words for future lab mates
Be prepared to ask lots of questions and it would be useful to know a little Japanese too! Everyone here is very friendly though, so no worries there.
Science is ……
exciting, sometimes frustrating, but rewarding in most cases in the end. Just keep going!
