Biography

I received my M.D. from the Charité, Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany.

Prior to my appointment at Cardiff University, I worked in Prof. J. “Mike” McCune’s laboratory at the University of California San Francisco and the J. D. Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology, San Francisco, USA, where I studied lymphocyte turnover in vivo in humans using stable isotope labeling.

Previously, whilst working with Prof. David Nadal at the University Children’s Hospital, University of Zurich, Switzerland, I studied the innate immune response to EBV infection.

I also worked with Prof. Karin Moelling at the Institute of Medical Virology, University of Zurich, where I developed and tried a DNA plasmid-based anti-angiogenic therapy with or without immunomodulatory therapy in a preclinical melanoma model. During this time, I worked clinically at the University Children’s Hospital, University of Zurich, Switzerland.

My MD thesis at the Charité, Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany, examined whether neutrophilic granulocytes in self-limiting cutaneous immune complex vasculitis die by apoptosis or necrosis.

My PhD thesis examinded antigen-specific turnover and expansion in vivo during chronic immune stimulation.
