Nina LE BERT
Nina Le Bert studied Biological Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, where she majored in Microbiology and Genetics. During her PhD at the Division for Infection and Immunity at the University College London, UK, she analyzed how environmental mycobacteria can modulate human T helper cell phenotypes through priming of dendritic cells. After she joined the Immunology Program at the National University of Singapore, she started studying the appearance of DNA in the cytosol of cancer cells by live-cell confocal microscopy and its role in activating signaling pathways leading to innate immune recognition of transformed cells. She is now a Research Fellow with SICS.
Her research interests lie generally in human immunology, to understand the complexity of the immune system and discover mechanisms that can be targeted to support the own body to fight diseases. In Dr Antonio Bertoletti’s group, she studies immune cell exhaustion in chronically infected Hepatitis B patients.
