I was trained as a medical laboratory technician (MTLA) at the university hospital in Münster between 2005-2008. After that, I studied life sciences at the WWU Münster and completed with a PhD at the Ophtha-Lab GmbH at the St. Franziskus-Hospital Münster (Prof. Heiligenhaus). During this time I investigated immunological mechanisms in the pathogenesis of autoimmune uveitis in childhood. After a short period in forensic genetics, I startet at the Institute of Physiology II (Prof. Linke) in 2023. My field of work includes different histological and various molecular biological techniques.
