Constantine Bitsaktsis
Seton Hall University, South Orange

Winner of the
AAI Travel Award 2017

"My group has been using the MACSQuant® Flow Cytometer for our cancer peptide binding assays to identify the activation status of NK cells."

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.

Guobao Chen
John Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore

Winner of the
AAI Travel Award 2017

"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."

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.

Quirin Hammer
DRFZ, Berlin 

Winner of the
Immunology Travel Award 2016

"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.“

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.

Mélanie Durand
Institut Curie Research Center, Paris

Winner of the
Immunology Travel Award 2016

"The DC meeting 2016 was for me a unique opportunity in my Ph.D. 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."

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.
