Dirk Alexander Frick, M.Sc.


Alex studied Molecular Medicine (B.Sc.) at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg and Developmental, Neural and Behavioural Biology (M.Sc.) at Georg-August-University Göttingen. He completed his master's thesis at the Whitehead Institute of Biomedical Research in Cambridge (Massachusetts), where he genetically engineered human stem cells to study Parkinson’s disease. After obtaining his degrees, Alex joined the Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge (United Kingdom) and investigated how endogenous metabolites promote cancer and ageing in mice. He is currently pursuing an M.A. in Philosophy of Science at Leibniz University and joined the Institute of Philosophy as a scientific staff member in December 2017. Alex is particularly interested in the moral responsibilities of scientific staff and institutions, the social implications of biomedical research as well as the ethical evaluation of animal experiments and their alternatives.
