    Ewelina Czlonka

  • Ewelina obtained her bachelor’s degree from the Lodz University of Technology, Poland with specialization in molecular biotechnology and technical biochemistry. She continued studying Biochemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany. During her master thesis, she investigated the role of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in AID-dependent secondary Ig gene diversification processes. In 2017, she joined Dr. Medyouf’s group as a PhD student to study the role of extra-cellular matrix proteins in human leukemias.

    Arnaud Descot

  • Arnaud studied chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Montpellier, France and structural and cellular biology at the University of Montpellier. After graduating, Arnaud moved to the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany in the group of Guido Posern within the department of Axel Ullrich. During his PhD, Arnaud contributed to the characterisation of the newly discovered Rho-Actin signal transduction pathway. In 2012 he joined, as a postdoctoral fellow,  the group of Thordur Oskarsson at the DKFZ/HISTEM in Heidelberg, Germany to work on matricellular proteins essential for the establishment of metastatic niches. End of 2017, he joined the Medyouf group to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in tumour immune escape.

    Aleksandra Nevmerzhitskaya (parental leave)

  • Aleks studied immunology at the International Sakharov Environmental University in Minsk (Belarus) and gained scientific experience working as junior scientist in the Laboratory of Immunology (Belarusian Research Center for Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Immunology). After completing her studies she joined the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and worked as a guest scientist to develop novel diagnostic tools to detect latent placental insufficiency. In 2015 she worked with Dr. Claudia Waskow at the immunology department of TU Dresden to study the mechanisms of rejection using advanced humanized mouse models. Lately, Aleks joined Dr. Medyouf’s group as a PhD to study the role of niche secreted factors in leukemia.

    Devona Soetopo

  • Devona received her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the Goethe University, Frankfurt. Her thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Clemens Glaubitz at the center for biomolecular magnetic resonance spectroscopy (BMRZ), where she studied the functional role of X-loop in ABC exporter using biochemical assays and solid state NMR. She joined Dr. Medyouf's group in 2016 as a research technician and is currently involved in studying the biology of human leukaemia using PDX models.

    Irene Tirado-Gonzalez

  • Irene holds a Master in “Integrated Quality Management for Environmental and Occupational Risk Prevention,” as well as a Master and a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Immunology from the University of Granada (Spain), where she characterized the dendritic cells isolated from spontaneously aborted embryos. In 2008, Irene moved to Berlin and worked as a research assistant at the department of internal medicine of the Charité hospital. She joined Dr. Medyouf’s group in February 2015 and is currently responsible for lab management and the development of improved culture conditions for primary cells obtained from patient biopsies.
