Kristina Schimmelpfeng Henthorn received her Ph.D. in developmental biology and neuroscience from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany in 2000.
She then moved to San Diego to pursue her postdoctoral training in Dr. Lawrence Goldstein's laboratory at UCSD where she focused on understanding the role of axonal transport in maintaining neuronal polarity using Drosophila melanogaster as a model system. She also collaborated in a study of Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) function in axonal transport and APP transcriptional target identification in the fly and tissue culture systems using RNA interference.
In 2008 Kristina became Principal Scientist at RGo Bioscience where she was investigating siRNA/peptide nanoparticle delivery technologies in vitro and in vivo until the company was acquired by Pfizer in late 2011. Since 2012 Kristina is working as Principal Scientist at RetroVirox Inc, developing anti-viral assays.
