Regina Weinmüllner


Position: Research assistant / PhD

Place of birth: Vienna, Austria

Scientific interests: Skin equivalents, skin aging, cancer research

Personal anti-aging strategy is my 5-year-old son. You get a lot of exercises in fresh air, have to keep an open mind about literally anything and - surprisingly - sleep deprivation works just fine after a few years of training.

Non-scientific interests: sewing, cooking, painting, gardening, writing (short stories) and realizing the newest creative idea of my son.


Ingo Lämmermann

Position:  PhD

Place of birth: Fürth, Germany

Scientific interests: Next to his never-ending quest for unraveling the mysterious regulation of the protein phosphatase 5 (PP5), Ingo is constantly screening plant extracts for possible anti-aging properties and tries to come up with new theories concerning the aging process of fibroblasts. In contrast to the tedious work with PP5 which is pertinaciously hiding its secrets, his work with the plant extracts was surprisingly fruitful and resulted already in one patent (FR 15 61400) which will be followed by publications.  

Personal anti-aging strategy: Playing young vs. old with my two sons. For now, the old sample has still the upper hand in most categories, but in terms of skin quality the fight is long lost.

Non-scientific interests: family, cooking, books, hiking, soccer, american football, board games, …
