Dr. Maike C. Lukowiak studied Chemistry (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) at Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin, Germany). She obtained her PhD in Chemistry in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rainer Haag (FU Berlin, Germany).

During her time at FU Berlin she realized scientific research visits at ETH Zürich, Switzerland and at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), USA.

In her doctoral thesis she modified hydrophobic polyolefins with hydrophilic polyglycerol (PG) to obtain improved properties and to investigate their potential biomedical application. The work was divided into two areas of research, bioinert surfaces and macromolecular carriers for drug delivery.
