Ines graduated as engineer in medical biotechnology (Technical University of Berlin) and finished her doctoral thesis in pharmacology at the Freie Universität Berlin in 2018 in the field of tattoo research. Since September 2017, she led the junior group "tattoo inks" at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). Since 2021, she is Co-Leading the newly formed Dermatotoxicology Study Centre at the BfR together with Dr. Katherina Siewert. 

Susanne Kochs

Doctoral Candidate 

Susanne studied Pharmacy in Kiel, Germany. She is part of the group since November 2019. She will work on the biodistribution and metabolism of tattoo ink ingredients. 

Lena Panse

Doctoral Candidate 

Lena studied Biotechnology in Berlin, Germany. She is part of the group since July 2023. She will work on 3D skin models and innate immune cells. 

Sandra Schiewe
