Mona performed her Bachelor's studies in Technical Biology at the University of Stuttgart and her Master´s degree in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Heidelberg in 2022. She joined the Loskill Lab as an intern in March 2020 to work on image analysis and rejoined the group to conduct her master's thesis in 2021. During her studies, she worked on the establishment of a new method for sterile effluent collection from the white adipose tissue-chip and its applications for multi-organ studies. In April 2022, Mona joined the 3R Center for In Vitro Models and Alternatives to Animal Testing as a scientific staff member to co-develop a course about next-generation in vitro models for non-clinical science. Mona is now pursuing her Ph.D., funded by the Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung, in which she aims to develop an immunocompetent pancreas-on-chip for diabetes modeling.
In her free time, Mona enjoys climbing, dancing, and spending time with her family and friends
