Minerva Garcia – Research Technician
I hold a BSc in Biotechnology from the University of Barcelona and I recently graduated from Imperial College London with an MSc in Immunology. My masters research project investigated the effect of dendritic cells in T follicular helper cell dysregulation during early life, in Dr James Harker‘s lab.
I then worked in Dr Cecilia Johansson’s lab, ICL, as a Research Technician for 7 months, where I investigated the role of type I IFN response in different COVID mouse models. In May 2022 I had the opportunity to join Prof Lloyd’s group and widen my research experience, and here I will investigate the immune-neuro-stromal communications in asthma.
