Veronika Breitkopf studied Biology (B.Sc) at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University in Hannover. Subsequently, she attended the master program „„International Studies in Aquatic Tropical Ecology“ at the University Bremen. During this program she spent one semester abroad in Indonesia. She performed her master thesis entitled „The factors behind the choice of a fishing gear and fishing location in Spermonde Archipelago, South Sulawesi, Indonesia“ at the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research and finished the program successfully in 2014. Afterwards she participated in the master program „Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences“ at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover. In 2017 she performed her master thesis with the title „Generation of C-type lectin human Fc fusion proteins from Danio rerio and initial bacterial screening“ at the Research Center for Emerging Infections and Zoonoses in the group of infection immunology.

In January 2018 Veronika started her PhD within the PhD Program „Animal and Zoonotic Infections“ in the junior research group of Dr. Imke Steffen at the Univerisity of Veterinary Medicine Hannover. She investigates the interaction of flaviviruses with human and animal hosts. The focus is on the identification of host-specific molecular factors that favor or restrict TBEV entry and replication at the cellular level.
