Natalie Jooss’s Profile

I received a Bachelor of Science from the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Germany) in molecular Biomedicine. Next, I moved to Stockholm (Sweden) to pursue a Master of Science within the Biomedicine program at Karolinska Institutet.

Following, I became an early stage researcher within TAPAS, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) with beneficiaries in 7 European countries. I am working on the ESR 4 project, which is shared between the Maastricht University (Netherlands) and the University of Birmingham (UK). In this project, we aim to further elucidate the role of GPVI and CLEC-2 receptors in context of platelet-platelet interactions in thrombus formation and structure, by utilizing the Maastricht Flow Chamber as well as Super-Resolution Microscopy.

Ever since I started to learn about mechanisms and functions of complex life processes I was fascinated by the sheer complexity and elegance of it. My motivation is to answer a small question, which might lead in a better understanding of something bigger and subsequently participating actively in efforts to improve the life of patients.
