Benedikt Huck is a PhD Candidate at the Drug Delivery Department at HIPS supervised by Prof. Claus-Michael Lehr. His works focuses on cellular and non-cellular barriers in the lungs and their role in the pulmonary treatment of M. tuberculosis. He is part of the BMBF funded ANTI-TB project, which aims at developing an inhalable anti-infective formulation based on nanocarrier drug delivery systems. He graduated in 2016 at the Johannes-Gutenberg Universität Mainz.
