Jana studies Biomimetics at Bremen University of Applied Sciences and joined the MicroOrganoLab at the beginning of April 2022 to write her bachelor's thesis. Her thesis topic is focused on developing a cartilage-on-chip model, supervised by Ning. Before this, as part of an integrated six month internship abroad, she worked at the Center for MicroElectroMechanical Systems (CMEMS) in Portugal on the topic "using microfluidcs to characterize the malaria effects on the red blood cells deformability". There, she was able to gain initial experience with microfluidic chips and biomedical research.
In her free time Jana plays handball, practises yoga, draws, reads and spends time with friends and family.
