Lisa Espig studied health sciences at the Technical University of Munich for her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Her areas of focus were scientific research methods and ethics. During those years, she gained first practical experience in the field of clinical research by supporting several university hospitals. She worked in the data management of clinical trials and directly in patient contact by collecting neurophysiological data from patients. After her studies, she worked for a global clinical contract research organization (CRO) as a regulatory submissions coordinator. She was responsible for submissions to the regulatory authorities (e.g., PEI, BfArm) and ethics committees. In July 2021, Lisa joined the Division of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine at the LMU Munich as a junior clinical project manager for PanACEA TB trials and other projects in Africa.
