My major research interests are minimal residual disease and early systemic disease in cancer. A current focus of my group is to improve CTC-based liquid biopsies. As such, we pioneered Diagnostic Leukapheresis (DLA) for enhanced CTC detection and established workflows to parse CTCs comprehensively at the single cell level. Hereby, we hope to get deeper insight into the biology of systemic progression and therapeutic resistance. Prior joining the HHU, I obtained post-doctoral training at the Institute of Immunology of the Ludwig- Maximilians-University Munich, Germany, in the group of Christoph Klein. I graduated from the University of Hamburg, Germany, in 1998 where I studied medicine.

I graduated Biochemistry in 2003 (Uni. Coimbra, Portugal) and completed my Ph.D. in 2008 (Uni. Düsseldorf, Germany).  My research has been focused in the optimization of methods and workflows to interrogate the heterogeneity of tumours and circulating tumour cells in order to explore its relevance for disease progression and therapy resistance.

I graduated in Biology in 2000 (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, Germany) and have an interest in CTCs and diagnostic leukapharesis (DLA). I am responsible for CellSearch analyses of blood and DLA samples and coordinate the sample registry and sample logistics. Further, I have responsibilities as laboratory manager.

I graduated Clinical Medicine from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) in 2010. Now, for my medical doctor degree, I am exploring technologies and developing workflows for isolating circulating tumor cells using magnetic particles.

In my master thesis, completed in Xiamen University (China), I have analysed circulating cell-free miRNA in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and explored differences associated with EGFR mutational status. Now, I am focused on the analysis of DNA methylation in CTCs and I aim to understand its contribution to gene expression and metastases.
