Elena Kromidas

PhD Candidate

Elena studied Technical Biology at the University of Stuttgart and gained insight in embryology as a visiting student at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Rovinj, Croatia, and marine biology at the Open Ocean Science Centre in Dahab, Egypt. During her master studies, Elena went to Boston for her master thesis at Harvard Medical School, working on an inhibitor of proteasomal degradation of proteins.

After working on CRISPR-Cas9 at Boehringer Ingelheim in Biberach as an intern, she joined the Loskill-Lab to pursue her PhD on the development and characterization of a Cervix on Chip. In her free time, she enjoys dancing, acrobatics, skiing in the wintertime and diving in summer.
