Barbara Kronsteiner-Dobramysl

Postdoctoral Scientist

I am a postdoctoral scientist in immunology with a background in immunoregulation by mesenchymal stem cells, epigenetic modulation of hematopoietic stem cell expansion, and mucosal and systemic immune responses to H. pylori in mice and pigs. Since January 2016 I am working in Prof. Susie Dunachie's Tropical immunology group on immune correlates of survival during acute melioidosis, a neglected tropical disease caused by the Gram- bacterium B. pseudomallei. Diabetes is the most prominent risk factor for getting this disease, therefore I am specifically interested in the metabolic changes in immune cells of diabetics that might account for their susceptibility to infection.
