A/Prof Claudia Nold
A/Prof Claudia Nold is an Immunologist and her research focuses on cytokine biology. After graduating in pharmacy at the University of the Saarland, Germany, Claudia Nold was awarded a competitive three year Ph.D. Fellowship of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in collaboration with the Institute of Asthma and Allergy of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. From 2006 until 2009 A/Prof C Nold took up a Post-doctoral position in Denver Colorado, USA in the laboratory of Prof. Charles A Dinarello.
