Unraveling Mechanisms of Transcription Factor-Mediated cDC1 Reprogramming


Evelyn has a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Technical Medicine from Furtwangen University (Germany). After her bachelor thesis at the Karolinska Institute (Sweden), which focused on the reversal of HIV-1 latency, she decided to pursue a master’s degree in immunobiology at the University of Bonn (Germany). In the course of this, she developed a strong interest in the ontogeny and heterogeneity of mononuclear phagocytes, especially dendritic cells. During her internship in the Pereira group, Evelyn will investigate mechanisms of transcription factor-mediated cDC1 reprogramming.

Besides science, Evelyn is a passionate coffee, art and literature lover. She also enjoys gardening even if only her “window jungle”, and random documentary watching.
