During my master Biomedical Sciences I followed an internship at the Georg-Speyer Haus, Institute for tumor biology and experimental therapy. There I established a pre-clinical in vitro assay for testing cytotoxic immune cell interactions in 3D models of colorectal cancer. After graduating I worked in industry where I contributed to a large human siRNA genomic screen and assisted in multiple assay development projects.
Being more fascinated by the dynamic interplay between immune cells and the tumor micro-environment, I joined the Akkari group to help understanding the role of various subsets of macrophages in the liver and brain tumor microenvironment.
