Current/Recent Course: MSc Bioscience/B.Sc. Life Sciences
Arne Scheu graduated from the University of Konstanz with a B.Sc. in the interdisciplinary field of Life Science and is currently pursuing an M.Sc. in Bioscience at KAUST. In Konstanz he investigated the control of DNA repair, the fundamental line of defence against cancer. At KAUST, he is conducting research on plant stress tolerance for crop development. He is driven by a strong interest in the underlying mechanisms of life combined with a desire to help: for him, scientific research and development are a pivotal service to society, key to facing the global challenges of our time. To this end, he will pursue a degree in Synthetic Biology at Oxford.
