Carolyn Krause completed her B.Sc. in Human and Molecular Biology at the University of Saarland and her M.Sc. in Medical Biology at the University of Duisburg-Essen. After working as a technical assistant at Resolve BioSciences GmbH for six months, she joined the Immunogenomics team as a PhD student in spring 2022. More specifically, Carolyn is part of the joint PhD program in Immunology at the Bonn & Melbourne Research and Graduate School Immunosciences (IRTG2168).
The aim of Carolyn's research is to elucidate epigenetic mechanisms that contribute to the suppression of reduced chromatin accessibility of gene loci involved in anti-viral immune responses (e.g. SARS-CoV-2) by myeloid cells.
