Julie is a fifth-year medical student at the Karolinska Institute. Her passion lies in the intricacies of the brain, the acute neuroinflammatory response after severe traumatic brain injury, and the subsequent chronic immune reactions. Julie has an interest in programming and has contributed to the development of an automated cell segmentation platform within her research group. Onwards, she will explore experimental techniques in addition to her programming skills. This will enable Julie to study the central nervous system following injury and to fulfill her long-term dream of becoming a surgeon while concurrently pursuing academic research.
