Welcome evi, our first postdoc!

September 2021: The Schober Lab's first postdoc! Evi joins the team from the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, and is funded by our BMBF grant. She is now excited to explore the T cell field, but will also contribute her extensive expertise in immunometabolism. We are very happy that you are with us and we are very much looking forward to working with you, Evi! Find out more about Evi's background here.

new publication: reverse phenotyping

July 2021: Our work on 'reverse phenotyping' of SARS-CoV-2 antigen-reactive T cells is published in Nature Communications. Want to find out why Schrödinger's cat may come to mind? Find out in this tweetorial on the initial pre-print. See also press releases of TUM and Helmholtz.

support through bmbf

June 2021: The Schober Lab is becoming more and more established. A fundamental basis for the lab is the support through the BMBF (junior research groups in infectious diseases program). Learn more about the program here and about our project to engineer antigen-specific T cells with physiological function here.

project funding by ekfs

April 2021: The Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung (EKFS) will fund a project on artifical intelligence-guided dissection of human antigen-specific T cell responses after yellow fever virus vaccination. The project will be carried out in collaboration with the group of Benjamin Schubert at the Helmholtz Center in Munich. Further information on the EKFS funding program can be found here. We are very grateful for the support and can't wait to get started!

The team is growing!

February 2021: Christine, Carolin, Philipp and Katharina will be joining the team in the next three months. Want to know who they are? Learn about them here. Welcome!
