Personal profile


Postdoctoral Fellow, Interventional Immunology in Neonatal Diseases

Ritchie Centre

Hudson Institute of Medical Research


I trained for 3 years as a Medical-Technical Assistant at the School for Health and Social Affairs in Meiningen, Germany before studying biochemistry/molecular biology at the Friedrich-Schiller-University, Jena, Germany. After graduating in 2008, I applied for a PhD Fellowship at the Pharmazentrum Frankfurt (Centre for Pharmacology and Toxicology, head of department Prof. J. Pfeilschifter) at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In July 2008, I was awarded a competitive three year PhD Fellowship by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (the German equivalent of the NHMRC). Under supervision of Prof. Heiko Mühl, I studied the expression regulation and function of interleukin-22 and completed my PhD in Theoretical Medicine in February 2012. Following my interests in cytokine biology and in the role of cytokines in inflammatory diseases especially of neonates, I joined the group of Dr. Marcel Nold and Dr. Claudia Nold at the Ritchie Centre in April 2012. Since then, I work on IL-37 and IL-38 and their potential in becoming new therapeutics for inflammatory diseases.
