Tanja Hussner studied biology at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and received her bachelor degree in 2016 for a thesis investigating effects of blood lipids on angiogenesis in cell culture, which she already conducted in the NeuroScienceLab. Tanja received her Master of Science degree in Biology in 2018 from the University Duisburg-Essen for a thesis in which Tanja Hussner examines how the deactivation of acid sphingomyelinase, controlls ceramide formation upon inflammatory stimuli, controls endothelial proliferation, migration and tube formation under physiological conditions and conditions of hypoxia and ischemia
Research interests

In 2018, Tanja Hussner started her PhD studies in the DFG-funded Research Training Group 2098 ("Biomedicine of sphingolipids") under the supervision of Prof. Dirk M. Hermann, evaluating consequences of the acid sphingomyelinase / ceramide system for ischemic stroke development and recovery.
