Techniciane.email@example.com Leila Akkari
After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Life Sciences at Radboud University, I completed the research Master’s in Molecular Mechanisms of Disease at Radboudumc. I performed an internship at the department of Radiotherapy & Oncoimmunology in Radboudumc where I studied the reprogramming of tumor-associated myeloid cells with a focus on lipid metabolism. In my second internship I worked on the identification of T cell migration regulators in solid tumors at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, Germany.
In December 2021, I joined the Akkari lab as a research technician. Here I will be investigating the use of pro-senescence therapy in liver cancer and its effects on the liver tumor microenvironment.
