Mareike studied molecular biomedicine at the University of Bonn and Yale University before moving to Switzerland for her PhD. She joined the Comprehensive Pneumology Center in Munich for a Postdoc with Melanie Königshoff where she got interested in lung aging.
She then started her own group in Munich focusing on cellular senescence in chronic lung diseases and has recently been appointed professor of translational inflammation research at the Philipps University Marburg.
She was awarded with a prestigious Emmy Noether award that will further allow her to explore cellular senescence and inflammaging in the development of COPD and IPF with a special focus on extracellular vesicles.
