I have continuously been acquiring third-party funding for my research since I was a doctoral student: for consumables, for staff positions, and for my own salary. I continue to conceptualize and apply for new projects. Currently two major projects are active in my lab.
The first project and my most important grant is the Research Unit (RU) (in German: Forschungsgruppe FOR) 2180 funded by the DFG ‘Graded Implants for Tendon-Bone-Junctions’ with > 8 million € total funds. I am leading three out of nine subprojects within this collaborative RU. In parallel to being spokeswoman of the RU, DFG has funded my own position in a so-called ´research unit professorship´ from 2016 – 2019.
The second project is a subproject within another collaborative funding scheme of DFG, the collaborative research centre / transregio ´SIIRI: Safety Integrated and Infection Reactive Implantsʼ. Here, I am the PI within one subproject.
DFG funding is highly competitive and one of the most renowned funding schemes in Germany.
You will find my current and past funding in the list below.
