Background and Interests

Lisa Taplick graduated at the University of Bonn with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Master of Science in Drug Research. She was also an active member of the chemistry student council for a long time. Due to her internships in various hospitals before and during her Bachelor’s degree, her focus was always on the effect of chemical substances on the human body. This interest led her into applied aquatic toxicology, where she can put her chemical and molecular biological knowledge to good use. Since October 2017, Lisa Taplick is a doctoral student in the AAT working group at HAW. The topic of her dissertation is the elucidation of the mechanism of action of nano-titanium dioxide-cadmium mixtures on the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as well as the chemical characterisation of the agglomerates. The doctorate is being carried out in a cooperation between the University of the West of Scotland and HAW-Hamburg.
