Name: Lisa Kleene
Background and Interests
Lisa Kleene studied at the University of Bonn and achieved a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Master of Science in Drug Research. Additionally, she was an active member of the student´s council. Because of practical work in different hospital before and during her bachelor studies, her focus lays on the mode of action of chemical substances in the human body. This led her to the topic “applied aquatic toxicology”, where she can prove her chemical and molecular biological skills.
Since October 2017, Lisa Kleene is a PhD student in the workgroup of Prof. Heise. Her dissertation is about the clarification of the mode of action of nano titanium dioxide-cadmium mixtures in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and the chemical characterisation of the agglomerates. The doctorate takes place in cooperation with the University of the West of Scotland and HAW Hamburg.
