Dr. med. Astrid Alflen

Research associate


During my medical training I did basic research on the effect of phytoestrogens on proliferation and on the stem cell signature of malignant testicular germ cell tumor cell lines. I completed my training and medical thesis in 2013 at the Georg August University, Goettingen (Germany). Since working as a resident physician in hematology and medical oncology at the University Medical Center Mainz (Germany) I was engaged in research again, mostly in the field of innate immunity. I analyzed the impact of targeted therapies on neutrophil functions and thereby on the susceptibility to infections of patients, working with human samples and mouse models.
