Identification of microorganisms and bacterial products that play a role in the development of immunosuppression in sepsis.
Academic University Medical Centres, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
In 2015, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedicine from the University of East Anglia (UK). During this time my interest in the gut-microbiome started and led me to do my Bachelor’s thesis on the role of bifidobacteria in the intestines under the supervision of Dr. Lindsay Hall at the Quadram Institue. I continued onto with a Master’s in Molecular Medical Microbiology at the University of Nottingham (UK). This allowed me to start my PhD position at Amsterdam UMC within the European Sepsis Academy under the Marie Sklowdowska-Curie scholarship. Under the supervision of prof. W.J. Wiersinga I work on the Identification of microorganisms and bacterial products that play a role in the development of immunosuppression in sepsis with a focus on the intestinal microbiome.
