Julia Hartweg

Julia Hartweg, graduate student, würzburg university, multiple myeloma research, multiple myeloma microenvironmentreceived her Master in Life and Medical Sciences after completing her Bachelor in Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Bonn. In her master thesis she investigated the role of constitutive active c-Kit in placental development. To analyze placental defects she employed immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization and other techniques. Furthermore, she derived new trophoblast stem cell lines from blastocysts to conduct in vitro analysis of these newly established cell lines.

Julia joined the Beilhack Lab for her PhD thesis in June 2016. She is working on the interaction of T cells with myeloma cells and myeloma niche cells. To this end she is using light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) to study interactions in the 3D-structure of the lung and within the bone marrow. Julia received a prestigious scholarship of the DFG graduate training program 3D Infect.
