Fabienne Birkle

Fabienne received her Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from Heidelberg University, Germany. She joined the Morrissey lab as a PhD student in December 2016. Fabienne is interested in how the Tissue Factor-Factor VIIa complex, the initiator of blood clotting, selects its substrates. To achieve this goal, she utilizes a combined approach of protein and lipid biochemistry, enzyme kinetics and electron microscopy.
