Main Focus

Mareike's research primarily focuses on the characterization of nanocarriers, with a specific emphasis on understanding their interactions with proteins. Utilizing techniques such as Asymmetrical Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (AF4), Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), Microscale Thermophoresis (MST), and Flow cytometry, she engages deeply in unraveling the complex dynamics between nanocarriers and proteins. By gaining insights into these interactions, her aim is to improve our understanding of nanocarrier behavior in biological systems, paving the way for the development of more effective drug delivery systems and biomedical applications.

Curriculum Vitae

Mareike earned her Masters degree in Biomedical Chemistry from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in 2019. During her studies, she conducted research at Durham University in England. Subsequently, she completed her PhD in July 2023 at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) under the guidance of Prof. Katharina Landfester and Dr. Svenja Morsbach, focusing on the interaction of nanocarriers with proteins. Currently, she works as a Postdoctoral Researcher at MPI-P, and holds a dual role as a Scientific Coordinator for the Collaborative Research Center (SFB1066) where, among other responsibilities, she organizes symposia and contributes to science communication initiatives.
