Check out what the winners from our previous travel awards have to say:
Quirin Hammer is currently a Ph.D. student in the Romagnani lab at the German Rheumatism-Research Center, Berlin. His general research interest lies in the field of regulation of innate lymphoid cell functions. His current research project focuses on natural killer (NK) cell memory during human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection.
The Immunology Travel Award is a great opportunity for young scientists to participate in exciting scientific conferences.
It shows Miltenyi Biotec's commitment to interaction within the field of immunology and is an excellent strategy to support
early career immunologists.
Mélanie Durand is currently a Ph.D. student in the Amigorena lab at the Institut Curie Research Center in Paris, France.
Her research interest lies in the field of antigen presentation in dendritic cells and the molecular analysis of immune responses,
particularly in the context of cancer.
The DC meeting 2016 was for me a unique opportunity in my PhD to discuss with peers about my project but also about their project
to have a larger view of the DC world. Thanks to Miltenyi Biotec's travel grant, I had a really amazing scientific time in Shanghai.
Guobao Chen, Ph.D.
Guobao Chen, Ph.D., is a Research Postdoctoral Fellow (Immunology Program), in the Department of Pathology at
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Chen received his doctoral degree in Immunology from National
University of Singapore. His current project is focusing on the mechanism behind post-injury cardiac inflammation and remodeling.
MACS® Microbeads for magnetic cell separation helped us to get 96.4% purity of a specific subset
of cardiac fibroblasts out from the whole dissociated mouse heart cells.
Constantine Bitsaktsis, Ph.D.
Constantine Bitsaktsis, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Seton Hall University.
He obtained his doctorate degree from King’s College University of London in 2002. He then moved state-side where he held two
postdoctoral positions at the Wadsworth Center and the Albany Medical College in Albany, NY. His research is currently focusing on
the utilization of novel vaccine approaches to combat microbial pathogens by generating long-term, protective immune responses.
My group has been using the MACSQuant® Flow Cytometer for our cancer peptide binding assays to
identify the activation status of NK cells.
1 Miltenyi Biotec will be giving away one Immuno-Oncology Innovation Award to one winner for each meeting. Up to 4,000 €.
