Mirjam Hoekstra MSc

Ph.D. student

Personal details


I studied Life Science (Bio-exact, BSc) and Immunology (MSc) at the University of Amsterdam. During my studies, I performed research internships at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Utrecht University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, focusing on innate and adaptive immunity.

I am mostly interested in fundamental immunology, specifically the role of T cells in immune responses. I have been working in the Schumacher lab as a PhD student since February 2014, and my work focuses on the behavior of tissue-resident memory T cells in the skin and the development of (reporter) technologies to study this.
