Higher education and employment history
Maria graduated with a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Bayreuth, Germany, in 2016. During her Masters she worked within the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research at the University Hospital Dresden. Here she was involved in research on mineralized collagen scaffolds, modified with strontium ions, for osteoporotic bone defect healing.
Her current field of research is the targeted healing of bony defects using TIO2 scaffolds and microgravity.
