Undergraduate Exchange Student, 2013-2014
I am an exchange student from Germany where I'm enrolled in the Bachelor's Program "Molecular Medicine". Right now, I'm spending a year abroad at the University of Michigan. I began to work in the Spence lab to gain more practical lab experiences and so I supported the group primarily with tissue sectioning and stainings. I'm doing an Independent Research Project which should elucidate the downstream signaling cascades occuring during 3D-Human Intestinal Organoid formation. In general, I'm really fascinated how concepts of Embryonic Development can be translated and applied in various fields like Oncology or Regenerative Medicine. Back in Germany, I will finish my Bachelor's degree and start Graduate School.
