Dr Lotte (CM) de Winde
Postdoctoral Fellow NWO Rubicon fellow
Lotte works on the function of Podoplanin on a molecular level using super resolution microscopy.
Dr Spiros Makris
Spiros will be working to understand macrophage populations within lymph nodes focusing on the resolution of inflammation.
Dr Yukti Hari-Gupta
Yukti is working to understand how fibroblast phenotype controls the inflammatory microenvironment in the context of anti-tumour immunity.
Christa supports all of the lab projects and is currently investigating cytoskeletal dynamics in FRCs and making new cell lines for the lab.
