Nicole Adam studied chemistry at the University of Heidelberg and received her diploma in 2011. She joined the group of Prof. Dr. Panak for diploma thesis working on the interaction of trivalent actinides and lanthanides with human serum transferrin at the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Within the scope of her PhD studies she continued her research in actinide/lanthanide transferrin complexation and graduated in 2015 by receiving her PhD



From 2015 Nicole Adam is working as research scientist in the group of Prof. Dr. Panak at KIT-INE. Her main research interests are the interaction of lanthanides and actinides with proteins and biological ligands to identify distribution pathways of incorporated radionuclides in the human body using mainly spectroscopic methods like time resolved laser fluorescence spectroscopy.
