Franziska Fries


Franziska Fries studied pharmacy at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, where she was awarded the Deutschlandstipendium for her outstanding academic achievements. In 2020, she completed her master's thesis in the Microbial Natural Products department of Prof. Dr. Müller, working on the establishment of a Staphylococcus aureus infection model in zebrafish larvae to investigate new potential active compounds in vivo at an early stage.

After successful licensure as a pharmacist in 2021, Franziska returned to HIPS and continues her work as a PhD student. Franziska’s research focuses on target identification and mode-of-action studies of novel antimicrobial natural products as well as the investigation of their ADME-Tox properties using zebrafish larvae.
