M. Sc. Maite Maurer

Maite Maurer studied biochemistry in a Bachelor's programme from 2015 to 2018 and subsequently in a Master's programme until 2020 at the University of Ulm. Her focus in the Master's programme was chemistry and pharmacology & toxicology.
Since 2021, she has been working as a research assistant and doctoral student in the Department of Clinical and Biological Psychology at the Institute of Psychology and Education at Ulm University. As part of her doctorate, she would like to combine the methodological knowledge from her biochemical studies with the topics of psychology and, in particular, investigate mitochondrial function in patients with mental health disorders.
