In the frame of this MIMS Spotlight Series, I interviewed Lana Jachmann who joined the Sixt lab in June 2021. She moved to Umeå from Germany to start the next phase of her scientific carreer.
Can you tell us about your role at MIMS, what are you working on now?
I joined Barbara Sixt’s lab as a research assistant, with the goal to stay long term as a PhD student. I am studying a bacterial pathogen, called Chlamydia. More specifically, I aim to determine the role of the Chlamydia-containing vacuole in counteracting the intrinsic defense responses of infected host cells. To do so, I am using a lot of microscopic and molecular biology techniques.
