Diana Bösel is from Germany. She studied to become a research assistant at “Berufsbildende Schulen” in Weißenfels. In previous postions she has focused on a range of different topics including neurology, anatomy, cardiology and infectious diseases. Diana joined this group in May 2018 as a lab manager and plays an active part in all research projects.

Yu-Hsin (Josch) is from Taiwan. He graduated from the National Taiwan University with a Master Degree in Molecular Medicine. Josch joined the Hegazy Lab as a PhD student in September 2018 and is currently investigating the phenotype and functional relevance of circulating and tissue-resident T cell in homeostasis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Saskia Hainbuch is from Germany and graduated from Goethe-University in Frankfurt with a degree in Bioscience. Her Master’s thesis, as part of a program at Humboldt-University, aims to investigate the effect of different cytokines on the expression of the OSM receptor in epithelial organoids, as well as the detection of the receptor in different tissue types. Saskia joined the Hegazy lab in May 2019.

Zuzanna Borek comes from Poland, where she did her Masters in Biotechnology at Jagiellonian University. She joined the Hegazy Lab in 2017 and is currently focusing on analysing single cell datasets from IBD patients from both mass cytometry (CyTOF) and single-cell RNA sequencing experiments. 

Roodline Cineus is from the United States of America. She holds a Bachelor degree in Biology and a Master degree in Molecular Medicine. Roodline joined the Hegazy lab in June 2018 and is investigating the role of Oncostatin M in inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis.

Veronika Horn is a physician scientist. Veronika studied medicine in Freiburg, Lyon, Ankara, Havana and London. Her current research aims to decipher the phenotype and distribution of circulating immune cells in IBD. Veronika spent a year in the lab from 09/18 till 09/19 supported by a Gerok research rotation position funded by the DFG SFB-TRR241. Veronika is currently back in the clinics continuing her internal medicine training. ££

Elena von Coburg is from Germany and is a student of Nutrition Science at the University of Potsdam. Her Master’s thesis project investigates the molecular mechanisms of impact of bacterial metabolites on immune cells. Elena joined the Hegazy lab in August 2019.
