Early Stage Researchers

Qiongfei Zhou

Qiongfei Zhou

ESR6

KU Leuven

Qiongfei Zhou is from China. She obtained her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Medicine at Central South University (China). During her Master's program, her research focus was on the proteomic study of osteoporosis and mechanisms of the role of exosomal miRNAs in bone remodeling.

In 2019, Qiongfei joined the ArthritisHeal ITN as a Marie Curie PhD Fellow. She is currently working at the Laboratory for Tissue Homeostasis and Disease that is directed by Prof. Rik Lories and Prof. Silvia Monteagudo, and is part of the Skeletal Biology and Engineering Research Center at KU Leuven.

Her project aims to analyze the resolution of inflammation and its lipid mediators in mouse models of osteoarthritis. ​

Jianyang Liu 

ESR 4

Karolinska Instituet

 

Jianyang Liu is currently a Chinese Ph.D student at department of medicine (Solna), Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. After finishing his bachelor degree (major in biotechnology) in Tongji University, Shanghai, China, he continued his study in the University of Melbourne, VIC, Australia. After graduation, he worked in a hospital in Beijing as a research assistant.

His previous research topics include: iron homeostasis in renal and neurodegenerative diseases, emotional aspects of cardiovascular diseases, etc. He joined the ArthritisHeal project in December, 2019. His own Ph.D project, entitled “Role of lipid mediators in pain in RA”, will focus on mapping the anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving actions of microsomal prostaglandin E synthase 1 (mPGES-1) inhibitors in comparison to Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in preclinical models of RA. Under the supervision of Prof. Per-Johan Jakobsson (https://ki.se/en/meds/research-group-per-johan-jakobsson; https://www.cmm.ki.se/web/guest/per-johan-jakobsson-group1), he will perform targeted and untargeted lipidomics studies using LC-MS/MS.

Celia Cartagena García

ESR 12

Beckman Coulter Life Sciences

 

Celia was born in Rojales (Alicante, Spain). She moved to Barcelona to study Biochemistry in the University of Barcelona and she graduated in July 2018. In the last year of her Bachelor’s degree, she performed a 10-month research internship at the Radboudumc (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) in which she studied the immune cell regulation during pregnancy by flow cytometry. Specifically, her project was based in the optimization of the decidual lymphocyte isolation protocol optimization and its implementation in 1st, 2nd and term pregnancy placental material. Following the strong interest in translational research that she developed during her Bachelor’s degree, she obtained a Master’s degree in Translational Biomedical research in the Autonomous University of Barcelona – Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (Spain) in July 2019. Her Master’s thesis was focused in studiying the role of a specific protein in a rare immune disease, hemophagocytic syndrome. She started her PhD in September 2019 at Beckman Coulter Immunotech (France), a company dedicated to create quality reagents and simplifying workflow for science and health. She is enrolled in the PhD program of the Aix-Marseille University. Her PhD is supervised by Dr. Jean-Marc Busnel, and is focused in the development of novel flow cytometry-based functional assays for patient stratification and personalized medicine in RA and OA.

Daniela Costa

ESR 10

Cardiff University

 

Daniela graduated in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Universidade de Lisboa. During her master's degree, she did an Erasmus Placement, where she was granted the opportunity to develop her master thesis in Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), in the toxicology department studying skin-derived stem cells and their application in toxicology assays.

After graduation, she worked as a community pharmacist for a year. Afterward, funded by Brainvectis Therapeutics and Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (Portugal), she joined I.Med.ULisboa at Faculty of Pharmacy of Universidade de Lisboa where she spent two years investigating the role of CYP46A1 as a therapeutic target in Niemann-Pick type C disease and its effect in lipid homeostasis in the neurodegenerative disease.

Her interest in lipids led her to join the ArthritisHeal ITN as a Marie Curie PhD Fellow. She is currently studying at Cardiff University, where she is focused on the role of oxidized phospholipids in the coagulation upsurge often seen in Rheumatoid Arthritis.
