Nadia Elghobashi-Meinhardt received her Bachelor in Chemistry from Stanford in 1999, after which she moved to Berlin to complete her Master (2001) and PhD (2005) in theoretical chemistry at the Freie Universität Berlin. She completed post-doc positions at the Fritz-Haber-Institute in Berlin and at the University of Heidelberg before moving back to Berlin in 2011 to continue research at the Freie Universität Berlin. In her research, Dr. Elghobashi-Meinhardt simulates the molecular dynamics of complex chemical and biological systems to learn about atomic interactions. Using these computational methods, she can model cholesterol trafficking in mammalian cells to understand the cause of metabolism disorders. Currently, Dr. Elghobashi-Meinhardt is a staff scientist in the Molecular Biomodeling Group at the Technical University Berlin.
