Caroline Maake joined the Institute of Anatomy in 1990, where she followed up her career as a research and teaching assistant. Here, she received the title of adjunct professor in 2011.

Her different research projects reflect the strong commitment of her group to interdisciplinary projects and basic research directly addressing clinical needs. The topics include photodynamic therapy, hyperthermia, nanomedicine, and most recently, intercultural approaches in medicine.

Caroline Maake studied human medicine at the Johannes-Gutenberg University of Mainz before she moved to Zurich in 1990. Here, she received her MD in 1994 at the Institute of Anatomy. 1995 - 1996 she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Internal Medicine and Physiology at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada but eventually returned to the Institute of Anatomy of the UZH for her habilitation work, for which she received the venia legendi in 2004. In 2005 she was visiting professor at the Institute of Anatomy, University of Erlangen, Germany.

Caroline Maake was elected "Teacher of the Year" by the students of the Faculty of Medicine in 2009 and 2012 and received the UZH teaching award "Goldene Lehr-Lorbeere" in 2019 and the “CS Award for Best Teaching 2023”.

Caroline Maake's research projects were funded, among others, by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the European Comission’s 7th Framework Programme, and Eureka Eurostars.
