She particularly enjoyed the multidisciplinary character of the research project and therefore decided in 2013 to pursue a PhD at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Basel. During her PhD she started a new research project on the development of novel medicines for asthma. For four years, she specialized primarily in the design and synthesis of carbohydrates and carbohydrate-mimetics. In 2017, she obtained her PhD summa cum laude and in the same year she started as a trainee patent attorney at V.O.
