• Evaluation of the scientific validity of animal experiments in Switzerland.
I started my studies at the University of Neuchâtel where I obtained my Bachelor degree in Biology in 2009. The same year, I started my master in molecular life sciences at the University of Bern. For my master Thesis I worked at the Institute of infectious diseases at the University hospital in Bern. The Project aim was to investigate the effect of maternal Vitamin C deficiency during pregnancy on the brain development of offspring of Guinea Pigs.
After obtaining my master degree, I started a one year traineeship at the Federal Veterinary Office where I took part in the project e-Tierversuche.
I have recently started a PhD at the Division of Animal Welfare aimed at evaluating the scientific validity of animal experiments in Switzerland.
