Jana Steger studied ‘Engineering Science‘ for her bachelor's degree. For her master's degree she chose ‘Mechanical Engineering‘, specialising in medical technology and material science at the Technical University of Munich. In her bachelor’s thesis she worked on the conceptual development and production of a port catheter with biocompatible silicone elastomers to improve tissue integration. In her term thesis she focused on the development of an experimental method and a numerical model to characterize the material behaviour of peripheral airways and vessels in the lung. In the master’s thesis she developed a new fiber integration method for the FLM process. During a research internship at the National University of Singapore she had the possibility to gain considerable knowledge in the field of electrospinning. Jana Steger started working in the MITI research group (Minimally invasive Interdisciplinary Therapeutical Intervention) in January 2019. Her main areas of research are minimally invasive surgery techniques and implant applicators.
