Ann-Charlott Salabarria, Ph.D.

Junior Scientist at CTL

Personal Statement Whether we are sick or healthy our immune system is critically involved in how we live life. This notion has been fascinating me and I have therefore pursued opportunities to study immune responses in different contexts throughout my career. Here at CTL I am now excited to see how my previous expertise along with the company’s leading know how in immune monitoring can be used to help our clients with their immune monitoring studies.
