Welcome to Franziska Bischof, new Master Student in Vanwalleghem Lab.
Franziska is working in the lab of Gilles Vanwalleghem with zebrafish to get a better understanding of the gut-brain axis, especially in immunology. She will be exploring which genes and molecular pathways are responsible for or involved in different pathogenesis of diseases linked to the gut microbiota composition. Furthermore, Franziska will study the mobilization of macrophages to compare inflammation levels between wild-type and germ-free larvae, as well as zebrafish larvae infected with Vibrio cholerae.
