Pia Dernick (ERASMUS student – Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)

Pia Dernick is currently in her last year of her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, where she developed a great interest in parasitology and especially in studying malaria. She has recently joined the PVREX group to do her Bachelor’s project, where she is working with transgenic Plasmodium falciparum in order to study the role of exosomes in cryptic niches in bone marrow and spleen. She is interested in learning more about infectious diseases, malaria and gaining insight into working in a molecular biology laboratory.
