CURRICULUM VITAE

M. Sc. CATHRIN HANSEN

 

PERSONAL PROFILE

Enthusiastic, thoughtful, direct, highly motivated, energetic, positive and team-orientated; these are the primary qualities to briefly describe my personality. These qualities drove autonomous work during my Bachelor thesis that led to a patent application and a successful internship in Canada participating in two projects during my master program with an authorship in 2020. My main interests are in Immunology and Neuroscience, and I am currently extending my knowledge with a PhD program in the field of Resolution of Neuroinflammation using lipid mediators in Multiple Sclerosis research
