About Hannah 

I am a molecular biologist from Croatia with a master’s degree in Molecular Microbiology. During my studies in Austria and France, I was introduced to immunology and was enamored with it ever since. Now that I joined Máxima, I have the opportunity to expand my field of interest and dive more into the world of oncology.

My Project: Immune profiling in pediatric cancer

A complete immune profile of patients could be a step forward to improving available treatment, but also patients’ life quality and expectancy. Therefore, my project focuses on understanding the function of cellular subsets and characterizing all the variables that contribute to successful
immune reconstitution upon stem cell transplantation.
