I grew up and studied Biochemistry in Germany. During my diploma and PhD thesis in Michael Sixt’s lab at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry near Munich I analyzed how the presenting mode of chemokines influences dendritic cell migration. After my PhD, I decided to gain experience in translational aspects of research and drug development. I joined the Novartis Postdoc Program in Basel, Switzerland, working within the autoimmune disease area. Beginning of March 2014 I am back in academia as a joint postdoc in the labs of Alex Marson and Jeffrey Bluestone. I am looking forward to learn more about regulatory circuits in T cells and to live in San Francisco…
