Saskia Biskup, MD PhD, co-founded the CeGaT GmbH in 2009. As a Human Geneticist, Research Scientist and Bioinfomatician she positions herself at the interface of diagnostics, research and clinic. During a two year scholarship sponsored by the German Research Foundation she gathered international experience at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, USA. Her own research revolves around LRRK2, a gene involved in Parkinson's disease, and the development of new biomarkers to enable early prediction of neurodegenerative diseases. Saskia Biskup was the first to discover variations in the LRRK2 gene; LRRK2 is the gene which is most often associated with Parkinson's Disease (Neuron 2004). She was awarded multiple international prizes for her research.
