Alicia is currently pursuing a master’s degree in biochemistry at the at the University of Tübingen with a focus on immunology and oncology. She received her Bachelor’s degree in biomedical science from Reutlingen University and did her bachelor’s thesis at the Fraunhofer institute IGB in Stuttgart where she investigated antioxidative and antimicrobial properties of microalgae.
During her studies, Alicia gained insights into various institutes and companies. One highlight was working for Vetter Pharma where she developed a medical device. Before joining the MicroOrgano Lab, she completed an internship at the skin clinics of the university hospital Tübingen, where she investigated the effects of different virulence factors of S. aureus in regard to their colonization ability on keratinocytes co-cultured with neutrophil granulocytes. She joined the Loskill Lab in June 2022 and will be working together with Elena on Cervix on Chip.
In her free time, Alicia enjoys gardening, cooking, dancing ballet and is a member of the German red cross.
