Studying platelet clearance using intravital imaging

May 26, 2020

Carsten obtained a degree in Biochemistry in Frankfurt before joining Bernhard Nieswandt’s lab in Würzburg to study the role of platelet granules in thrombosis, hemostasis stroke and inflammation. After that he obtained a DFG Postdoctoral fellowhip and joined the lab of Paul Kubes in Calgary, Canada to investigate the interactions between liver macrophages (Kupffer cells), platelets and bacteria using intravital microscopy. Since 2019 he is a research group leader and head of the platelet beyond hemostasis lab.

When he’s not in the lab, he spends time with his family, likes hiking, cooking and canoeing.
