Postdoctoral fellow+31 20 512 8684 email@example.com Leila Akkari
Pharmacist from training, I chose to focus my career on translational research and obtained a Master degree in Cell Biology at the University of Paris Descartes (France) in 2015. I then started my PhD in Brisbane, Australia, at the Mater Research Institute in A/Prof Ingrid Winkler’s lab. My PhD studies focused on targeting the bone marrow microenvironment to improve acute myeloid leukemia response to standard chemotherapy.
I joined Dr Leila Akkari’s lab to start my postdoc in August 2020, where I will investigate the contribution of macrophages to glioblastoma resistance to treatment and recurrence.
