Update from Antonia

Antonia Zech – who worked with Ana for 5 months in 2013-4 as part of her Masters degree in Hamburg – has sent us an update on her activities. She has been doing a PhD at the Institute of Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf – in the group of Lucie Carrier. She is working on understanding the process of autophagy in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, using techniques like confocal microscopy, gene therapy and working with iPS-cells.
More importantly though, she has also been busy creating a family. Emil Isaac was born (a little while ago – on November 2018), and is apparently causing havoc at home now (in the nicest possible way!) as he learns how to explore. Congratulations Antonia!
