headline-markerDr. Lisa Landgraf



Background and Position

Dr. Lisa Landgraf was born 1987 in Gera, Germany. She obtained her Diploma/M.Sc. in Biology from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena in 2011, with research experience in induced gene silencing in plants. She joined the Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology in Jena and was involved in a research project funded by the DFG and finished her Ph.D. in October 2015. In January 2017 she joined the SonoRay project (funded by BMBF) at ICCAS as a Postdoc. Since January 2018, she was the group leader of the SonoRay project with research focus in the field of MR-guided FUS and radiation therapy for cancer treatment. Since September 2021 she is responsible for proposal coordination especially in topics of MR-guided interventions for DFG and other funding bodies.
