highly accomplished Molecular Biologist with extensive international experience in cutting-edge basic and Translational Research environments. fascinated with the different incentives and structural frameworks that shape basic, transitional and Applied science. looking forward to applying my attention to detail, wide-ranging experience, as well as passion for the discussion, presentation and contextualization of scientific findings outside of the academic sector.
Since February 2013
developed combinatorial tetramer staining protocols to reveal, directly from human samples, the repertoire of influenza-specific cd4 t-cells, and its modulation by precursor frequencies and immunotherapy. translated this approach to describe a new target of autoimmunity in rheumatoid arthritis and study how these pathogenic responses are shaped by Clinical progression and therapy.
