Personal profile


Dr. Anouk von Borstel is an early career researcher at the Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) with a keen interest in the adaptive immune system. She gained her PhD (2019) at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, the Netherlands, investigating the role of B cells in rheumatic autoimmune diseases and published 4 first and corresponding author articles. In 2018, she was recruited to Prof. Jamie Rossjohn’s laboratory within the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology of the BDI. Dr. von Borstel’s current research interest is focused on the immunobiology of a poorly understood T cell population known as γδ T cells. She is trying to uncover the adaptive-like γδ T cell function in infectious diseases and tumour immune surveillance. She has ample experience in immunological and molecular techniques such as flow cytometry, cell sorting, and γδTCR sequencing and is actively (co-)supervising several students. So far, her exciting work has resulted in a first author and multiple co-authorships on articles published in high-quality journals.
