Marietta Herrmann studied biology in Aachen, Germany, where she received her PhD in 2012.
Marietta`s PhD was focused on the role of the plasma protein fetuin-A in the regulation of mineral homeostasis. Her thesis, involving in vivo work using transgenic animals as well as in vitro cell biological studies, was specifically focused on the natural mechanisms responsible for the inhibition of ectopic mineralization.
After her PhD, Marietta joined the AO Foundation Research Institute in Davos, Switzerland for postdoctoral training. The main focus of this post-doc was on bone regeneration with emphasis on strategies to promote neovascularisation and the role of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) herein.
In 2017, Marietta became group leader of a junior research group embedded in the Musculoskeletal Center Wuerzburg at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. The research focus of the group is on MSC biology, in particular their interaction with the microenvironment, immunomodulatory properties as well as their involvement in bone regeneration.
