In 2001, she entered the field of intervertebral disc research where she focussed on disc mechanobiology, disc degeneration and disc tissue engineering at the cellular and organ culture level with consideration of the degenerative and pro- inflammatory environment of the disc. Her ongoing research work aims to contribute to an improved understanding of the disc degenerative pathway and regenerative treatment strategies. She is an active member of several national and international scientific societies (Deutsche Wirbelsäulengesellschaft DWG, Spine Society of Europe Eurospine, International Society of the Study of the Lumbar Spine ISSLS).
