is working on his medical doctoral thesis in close collaboration with Katja Ottmüller to study the homing mechanisms of alloreactive donor T cells in the intestinal tract during acute GvHD. More specifically, he investigates factors, which efficiently guide T cell migration from secondary lymphoid organs to the intestinal lamina propria. Lukas Scheller is a 4th year medical student at the University of Würzburg. For his outstanding achievements he was awarded with a scholarship of the Studientstiftung des deutschen Volkes.
