During her studies she worked as a research assistant in the Neuroanaesthetic group which investigated the detection and differentiation of cerebral microemboli using TCD Ultrasound. She joined the Prostate Cancer group at the Department of Molecular Medicine of Aarhus University to conduct the research for her diploma thesis. She analysed the prognostic potential of a ratio model based on miRNA signatures from radical prostatectomy tissue samples and validated her results in laboratory setting. Her clinical training in oncology took place at the National Centre for Tumour (NCT) diseases in Heidelberg.
Ines was awarded several scholarships for academic excellence, most notably the Zois scholarship by the government of Slovenia and the Leistungsstipendium by the Medical University of Vienna. Her PhD research is supported by the CRUK studentship.
