Elisabeth grew up in Regensburg, Germany. She received her MSc degree in Biology with focus on Genetics from the University of Zurich. During her Master thesis project in Stefan Luschnig’s laboratory, she studied the role of the C2-domain protein Staccato in tracheal tube fusion in Drosophila melanogaster.
In November 2013, she joined Hugo Stocker’s group as a PhD student, investigating the processes of early tumorigenesis using wing and eye discs of Drosophila melanogaster as a model.
