Maiken Mellergaard

Industrial postdoc

I am an ambitious, independent, and hard-working research scientist with experience in immunology and cellular metabolism. I have a passion for understanding the interplay between cells and their environment and how the impact on cellular activity and function, as well as disease development and treatment. I highly value interdisciplinary research and collaborations - and the immense gain of these. I am positive and inquisitive by nature and with my excitement for science I bring positive energy to the research projects I engage in.
