Scientific summary

Tissue effector and memory generation during infection

Investigation of T cell-mediated responses in infections, i.e. Influenza.

Immune cell activation in T cell-mediated autoimmunity:

The major aim of my research project within my Master's thesis was to study the mechanisms of autoimmune disease induction against a neo-self antigen using transgenic mouse models. I investigated the role of innate immune cells and the innate immunological signals that impact the pathologic T cell response and T cell differentiation decisions within these models.

Scientific interest:

What I really enjoy about scientific research are the discussions of new findings with other scientists and the drawing of connections between the different cellular responses during an immune response. For me, one of the most interesting parts of the immune response includes T cell activation and differentiation, because the fate of most adaptive immune responses is largely controlled by T cell decisions.

Further to Immunology, I developed interest in Stem Cell biology and Tumor Immunology during research assistance, Bachelor's thesis and Tumor therapy courses in my studies. Thus, with my broad range of scientific interest, I love to combine all these different scientific fields.
