Fatty acids on the crossroads of metabolic and immunological pathways in sepsis


University College London



Short CV

I got my master degree in 2015 in Molecular Nutrition and Immunology at Wageningen University, the Netherlands. After graduation, I worked as teaching assistant in different courses on nutrition, pharmacology and molecular- and microbiology. I moved to London to be working on one of the PhD projects within the European Sepsis Academy, an international trainings network under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie scholarship. I am based at University College London, where I research the impact of fatty acids on metabolic and immune functions in sepsis; with Prof. Mervyn Singer and Dr. Manu Shankar-Hari being my supervisors.
