During her studies, she received the German National scholarship and was part of the support program TUM Young Academy. In her Master's Thesis at the Helmholtz Centre Munich, Maria studied genetic mutations in murine models for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Before joining ETH Zurich, she worked at the Roche Invocation Center Zurich focusing on high throughput molecular cloning and gene expression techniques. As one of the first students to join, Maria took part in establishing the Laboratory for Biological Engineering. In her PhD Thesis she combines her two main interests by developing direct in vivo CRISPR screens in the central nervous system.
