Sarah Burkhardt studied medical engineering (B.Eng.) at the University of Applied Sciences Amberg-Weiden and then completed the Master of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Munich, specializing in medical and plastics technology. As part of her bachelor thesis, she examined the antimicrobial effect of additized plastics and dealt with the image analysis of microbiological exudation tests. In addition, she developed an extrusion tool for the production of multi-lumen catheter tubing during her semester thesis and investigated the extrudability of room-temperature-curing silicones. As part of her master's thesis, she dealt with the chemical modification of silicone surfaces to improve the hemocompatibility of blood-bearing systems. Sarah Burkhardt has been working as a research assistant at the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants since January 2016.
