Well done to Nadine, VitDAL MSc student

This week the VitDAL said goodbye to Nadine Kamenjarin, an MSc student from Johannes-Gutenberg University of Mainz, who spent 3 months in the lab working with Iris on a project which aims to define the functional relevancy of altered cytokine production in vitamin D conditioned dendritic cells. Nadine has done a great job and has advanced an important area of research in the lab including the instigation of a cytokine gene knock down approach which has allowed us to influence cytokine production in dendritic cells. We are very grateful for all her hard work and commitment in recent weeks and are sad to see her leave the lab. We wish her all the very best for the rest of her MSc studies in Germany.
