Martin Parnov Reichhardt

Ambrose College

I am originally from Denmark where I did a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Biomedicine. I subsequently did my PhD at the University of Helsinki, Finland, and am currently working as a postdoc at the University of Oxford, UK. My research has focused on various aspects of immunology and microbiology, and included a multitude of approaches. These range from basic immunological techniques, to stem cell culturing, handling of human in vitro fertilised embryos, and finally protein expression, X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy. I have a long and solid experience with teaching. At the University of Oxford I have lectured, taught seminars, tutorials and demonstrated in lab courses for medical students. I have furthermore planned and executed courses for PhD students in immunology at the University of Helsinki. These contributions to teaching at various universities led to me receiving a student-nominated teaching award. I am the current Chair of the international society of young researchers in the field of complement research: "Young Complement Investigators".
