Christina CourregesI graduated from University of Bonn (Germany) in 2014 with a BSc in Biology.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent two semesters at the University of Ottawa with a focus on Molecular Medicine. This was followed by a Master’s Degree in Molecular Biosciences with a Major in Cancer Biology at the University of Heidelberg in collaboration with the German Cancer Research Center (2014 – 2016. As part of the Master’s programme, I spent two months working at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research in the research group of Ken Smith and three months at the Institute for Experimental Immunology of the University of Zurich in the research group of Maries van den Broek.
My current project as a PhD student at the Babraham Institute involves investigating the role of the class III PI3K Vps34 in regulatory T cells and activated CD8+ T cells.
