Marlene Strobel

Marlene Strobel, PhD student, GSLS Würzburg, TRR124 FungiNet, host-pathogen interactions, immunotherapycompleted her bachelor and master of science studies in biology at the Würzburg University in 2014 and 2016, respectively. During her Master studies, she mainly focused on cell- and developmental biology and human genetics. She established a correlative light and electron microscopy protocol to study neuronal structures in zebrafish larvae. Moreover, she gained experience in various molecular biological techniques and microscopy techniques such as electron tomography, array tomography, TEM, SEM and SIM. After completing her master studies she worked as a researcher at the Central Division for Electron Microcopy at Würzburg University. In Autumn 2017 she  joined the Beilhack lab to pursue her PhD studies on host-pathogen interactions. She is a member of the Collaborative Research Center Funginet (TRR124) and focuses on neutrophil defense mechanisms in Aspergillus fumigatus infections. For her in vitro and in vivo experiments she employs multiparameter flow cytometry and various imaging techniques, such as non-invasive bioluminescence imaging, CLSM, and light sheet fluorescence microscopy.
