Bio Summary

Lisa started her scientific studies in 2013 at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands), where she followed the bachelor program Biomedical Sciences. For her master’s degree she was part of the international Molecular Mechanisms of Disease program in Nijmegen. In 2018, she conducted her master thesis in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine in Oxford at the MRC Human Immunology Unit. Here she got acquainted with the field of immunology and her thesis focused on the organization of membrane proteins in T cells. In October 2018, Lisa joined the Schmidt lab as a PhD student where she now mainly works on the characterization and visualisation of the GSDMD pore formation process using nanobodies.


The hobby she holds most dear is making music (piano, fluegelhorn, trumpet, trombone). To get some fresh air she likes to go mountainbiking or participiate in a muddy obstacle run. That is, if there is still time left after a journey back home to the Netherlands every day
