Current Experience

  • Masters Student
    Since August 2015
    Master's thesis at HIV Translational Research Unit (HTRU), department "Inwendige Ziekten"​. The master's thesis involves targeting latent HIV present in viral reservoirs, in an attempt to reactivate the virus and neutralize it using a "shock and kill"​ strategy. HIV latency is heavily regulated by epigenetic modifications. In this master's thesis, an attempt will be made to undo these epigenetic modifications using a CRISPR/dCas9 construct linked with an epigenetic modifier.
