Luise was born in beautiful Hamburg. She studied Biochemistry at the Freie Universität Berlin. After exploring the field of toxicology during her bachelor thesis, where she studied the effects of pyrrolizidine alkaloids on liver cells and a brief stay in tissue engineering where she worked on producing artificial blood vessels she visited the Hackenberger Group for a research internship. There she learned about chemical biology and especially cell penetrating peptides for the first time and continued working on this topic for her master thesis. She stayed with the Hackenberger lab for the opportunity to further optimize CPPs and CPP mediated delivery of protein cargo.
