People who makes it all possible
I’m a biomedical researcher doing my PhD studies at Lund University. I am developing a potential immunotherapy against cancer based on direct reprogramming strategies. To this end, I aim to reprogram cancer cells towards antigen presenting cells that, when infused in mouse cancers, they can act like trojan horses against tumours. I always loved science and the last stretch of my PhD made me want to try new things in the field. Thank you for welcoming me into the Pint of Science team!
I am a neurobiologist at Lund University. I study the way bumblebees navigate and remember the world around them (they can do incredible things despite their tiny brains!). I believe science should be accessible and fun, and to me, Pint of Science seems just the thing that combines those two things.
I am a PhD student at Lund University, working on better understanding how cells decide and maintain their role in our bodies, and how we could manipulate their identities in the cotext of cancer treatment. In addition to this I have a strong interest in popular science communication. I am also a science communication officer at the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine and a co-organizer of existing science pub evenings in Lund together with my colleague Ervin Ascic.
I am a PhD student in Medical Sciences at Lund University and my research interests are to explore novel and unconventional therapeutic avenues to tackle unresolved roadblocks in cancer treatment. Currently, I am investigating whether in vivo cell fate reprogramming of tumor cells into conventional dendritic cells type 1 (cDC1) can reinstate immunological competence and elicit durable anti-tumor immunity, thereby supporting the development of a novel cancer gene therapy. Besides my own research, I am also employed by the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine in Lund as a science communication officer. This position allows me to write regularly news articles for a monthly newsletter, organize diverse internal and external events and perform general outreach activities such as interviews and podcasts. Most importantly, as an enthusiastic science communicator I initiated with my colleague Nejc Arh regular public events to give local and young scientists from diverse fields the opportunity to engage with society. I am convinced that communicating research to the broader public is equally important as performing the actual studies.
