Ingrid de Vries

The Job
Research Technician Group Sixt
 
I joined the lab, and moved to Austria, when Michl started at ISTA. 
I am doing research, organize the lab. And I try to support my colleagues on all levels. 
I specially like the creative braining storming, for the best approach of a new experiments/improve existing experiments.
The Projects:
I am the lucky one, who can do all the ‘crazy’ projects.
At the moment I am study the migration of DC cytoplast cells. Those are dendritic cells without a nucleus.
And when it is necessary, I help out with revisions.
 
Beside the lab work, I am also active as technician spokesperson, involved with the green labs and organizing lab tours for ISTA colleagues working in the administrative branch.
The origin:
The country of bikes, ‘Gouda’ cheese and fried snacks. I am from the Netherlands.
