Dr. med. vet.; Recipe Author


Inke Weissenborn was born in Bochum in 1975. Already her mother placed great importance on healthy nutrition and, thus, cooked, with fresh ingredients and rejected both ready-made meals, and fast food. After graduating from the Waldorf School in 1994, she studied veterinary medicine at the Justus Liebig university in Giessen, where she received her license to practice medicine in 2000. In the same year, she went to the Virological Institute at the University of Cologne, where she worked in the field of cancer research as part of her doctorate until 2004.

She married in 2006. Over the next few years, she changed her place of residence within Germany several times and also had different jobs in veterinary practices. In 2011, she moved to Singapore with her family and their now two children, where she lived for a total of 7 years, with a break of 2 years.

She first worked at a veterinary clinic and later the Wildlife Rescue Centre, ACRES (Animal Concerns Research & Education Society). During this time, she was able to get to know a wide variety of food cultures, thanks to many trips to Asia. In the two years in between, Inke Weissenborn lived with her family in Switzerland, on Lake Zug. There she met Ernst Erb in 2015 and has since then worked for the Foundation Health and Nutrition Switzerland, where she serves as a member of the board of trustees and is mainly involved in publishing correspondence, creating recipes, and writing book reviews. In addition to working at the foundation, she is a housewife and mother and a Pilates trainer at the PTSV gymnastics club in Aachen, her current residence.


Healthy and conscious nutrition with the welfare of animals in mind is a personal concern of mine. As a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine with a background in cancer research, I have a solid understanding of nutritional physiology. My many years of experience in Asia have given me a profound insight into the different cultural background of food culture.

I love trying out new, unusual dishes and creating them myself. I also like to use home-grown vegetables and herbs. Furthermore, I particularly, like Asian dishes, such as the spicy Asian soup with lemongrass.

Through my work, I hope to contribute to healthy living and responsible interaction between people and animals.

Presentation award at the 20th International Papillomaviris Conference held at the Institute Pasteur, in Paris, October 2002.

Transgenic animal model for the treatment of skin tumors. 
Abstract: A novel animal model for the treatment of skin tumors is described. In particular, the invention provides transgenic non-human animals comprising a recombinant nucleic acid molecule containing a nucleic acid sequence encoding at least one of the gene products of the early genes of a virus of the Human Papilloma Virus Group B1, in which the animal displays one or more clinical symptoms of a tumor. The transgenic animals can be used to screen anti-tumor agents and to identify the tumorigenic potential of compounds.
