Hi, I'm Eva Maria Scherer and I studied IfLS PhD: Developing an experimentally validated model of T-cell activation to understand key molecular factors and processes that control adaptive immune responses at the cellular and organism level within Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Working at the interface of two disciplines is an opportunity, which allows me to integrate two areas of science that have always interested me.

Having become interested in NMR during my undergraduate projects, it was a field that I wanted to continue working in.

I graduated from the University of Southampton with a Masters degree in Biomedical Sciences, where I worked on solution and solid state NMR projects studying the structural dynamics of β2m and the membrane interactions of KcsA.

My interdisciplinary research project allows me to integrate this technique with Immunology, with the aim to understand how MHCI dynamics and interactions with CD8 relate to its function and ability to activate T-cells. Bringing these two disciplines together will give an insight into the mechanisms which occur at the atomic level and how they contribute to this process.
