My name is Anne Morbach. I am a biologist who dabbled in different fields – structural biology, membrane fusion, developmental biology and Drosophila genetics. The latter two accompanied me through my Ph.D. For more detailed information, feel free to consult the short CV at the bottom of this page.
My skills in vector illustration and, lately, 3D modelling, are entirely self-taught. Already at the tender age of seven I used to “play” with CorelDraw on my mother’s first PC. Since then, I have never stopped developing my skills, driven by pure passion for the subject.
