She established her group at the Department of Clinical Neurobiology, German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in 2014. Her team investigated molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in neural cell proliferation and migration in brain development and malignant growth. Specifically, her group focused on the interaction between the vascular and nervous systems in the developing brain and lipid metabolic pathways in glioblastoma.
