Rebecca Steubing studied biology at the Ruhr-University in Bochum and received her Master's degree at the institute for pharmacology and toxicology (University Witten/Herdecke) in 2016. As a PhD student at the University Hospital Düsseldorf, she started studying inflammation in an acute model of myocardial infarction. In October 2017, she changed subjects and started as a PhD student at the NeuroScienceLab under the lead of Prof. Dr. Kleinschnitz and the supervision of Dr. Stine Mencl and Dr. Friederike Langhauser, focusing on neurodegeneration and inflammatory processes in stroke models. Currently, she is working as a postdoctoral researcher in the newly founded research group of Prof. Dr. Ana Casas, "Network pharmacology for neurovascular diseases". Here, her focus is centred on long-term recovery after stroke and how in silico target identification can help modulate these processes.
Research interests

Rebecca Steubing uses in vitro and in vivo methods, including cell culture, molecular biology, microscopy and behavioural assessments to unravel the complex underlying mechanism of cerebrovascular disorders with the immune system. Her particular interest lies in studying long-term recovery and restorative processes after experimental cerebral ischaemia (tMCAO).
