Name: Alea Radcke
Position: Erasmus+ Student, 2022
I completed my bachelor’s degree in “Molecular Biomedicine” at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany, in 2021, and I am now pursuing a master’s degree in “Medical Immunosciences and Infection” at University of Bonn, Germany. During my bachelor’s degree, I worked in a diagnostic laboratory in Cologne, first in their microbiology department and later, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, I was transferred to the molecular biology department to assist with their RT-qPCR pipeline. For my bachelor thesis, I joined a tumor immunology group at the University Hospital of Bonn, where I got extensive research training in mouse work, cell culture, and flow cytometry. In August 2022, I joined the IBMB-CSIC Department of Structural and Molecular Biology as an Erasmus+ student to work on the functionalization of bacterial flagella.
