She is working in the biomedical research laboratory under the direction of Prof. Dr. Peter Brossart. Her thesis focuses on immunotherapy in multiple myeloma.
Currently she investigates the regulation of immune cells and the expression of immune checkpoints e.g. by using CRISPR/Cas9 technology and flow cytometry.
Nathalie accomplished her studies in biochemistry at the Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2014. For her master thesis she went to the laboratory of Prof. Ruth J. Muschel at the University of Oxford, UK. There she studied the role of myeloid cells in liver metastasis e.g. by using immunohistochemistry and lentiviral transfections.
While she is very passionate about basic cancer research, equally important to her is science communication and health education.
