I work on the fish immune system. Primarily, I work with a parasite disease, called white spot disease, caused by a protozoan Ichthyophthirius multifiliis and will in an ongoing project try to develop a vaccine against this pathogen. In addition, I work with zebrafish (Danio rerio) and will try to discover which primary organs parasite antigens first are transported to in order to elucidate the early reactive centres of the immune system.
I am a biologist from the University of Copenhagen and have been working with the fish immune system and related parasite diseases since November 2005. I got my PhD degree in 2011 and am at moment working as a postdoc on my own project until 2016.
