Sine Kragh Petersen
PhD student

I joined Anetta Härtlova’s group in January 2019 to pursue my PhD in the metabolic regulation of inflammation. I was awarded a MS.c. degree in Biology with a specialization in Cell Biology and Physiology from the University of Copenhagen. During my studies I contributed to research through my master’s thesis in metabolism and through my student job at the Paediatric Oncology Research Laboratory, Rigshospitalet.

Sine is interested in how different fat from our diet impacts our immune system.

Maria Öberg
PhD student

I joined Anetta Härtlova’s group in February 2019 due to my interests in the role of the immune system in age related diseases. I was awarded a BS.c. degree in molecular biology 2016 and a master’s degree in molecular biology with specialization in medical biology 2018, both at Lund university. During my studies I contributed to research on the detection of peripheral immunological biomarkers for epilepsy as well as research on the involvement of macrophages in neuroblastoma. This made me interested in the role of the innate immune system in homeostasis and disease, especially in the molecular mechanisms of innate immune cells and their effect on neurodegenerative diseases.

Maria is interested in how supporting innate immune cells shape our mind.

 

Daniela Fabrikova
Post-doc

I joined Anetta Härtlova’s group in March 2019 as a postdoctoral researcher to study how exosome-mediated inflammation contributes to development of age-related diseases. I was awarded a PhD degree in Infection biology in the Czech Republic in 2018. During my studies I contributed to research of the mechanisms that govern the regulation of innate immune signalling pathways in Francisella tularensis pathogenesis by ubiquitylation.

Daniela is interested in how dysregulation of lipid metabolism influences innate immune sensing mechanisms in our brain.

 

Megan Gant
Visiting UK PhD student

I am a visiting Ph.D student from Newcastle, UK where I worked on Toll-like receptors as well as being involved in the development of analytical columns for HPLC in partnership with Thermo Scientific. In Gothenburg, I am a collaborator in projects related to innate immunity and Toll like receptors.

 

Vera Vozandychova
Visiting Czech Republic PhD student

I am a visiting Ph.D student from Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic where I worked on how ubiquitylation regulates innate immune response to bacterial infection. In Gothenburg, I am studying the regulation of innate immune sensors.

 

Linnéa Persson
Msc. Student

I joined Anetta Härtlova’s group in the end of March 2019 to do an applied project as part of my master’s degree in molecular biology. Previously I have mainly worked in the field of prokaryotic microbiology. During my bachelor’s project I joined a group focused on research regarding the rising antibiotic resistance crisis. My contribution in this group was a high-throughput screening for chromosomal determinants of conjugation in Escherichia coli. In the summer of 2018 I was part of Biozentrum Research Summer in Basel, where I joined a group specialized in the type VI secretion system (T6SS) in bacteria. During my time there I focused on the mechanisms of T6SS in the intracellular pathogen Francisella novicida.

In Anetta’s lab I will learn how to work with cell lines and gain a deeper understanding of the cellular function of LRRK2 in macrophages.
