Karim Ajmail studied Biochemistry and Physics in Göttingen and finished his Bachelor in 2020. In his Bachelor thesis in Andreas Janshof’s group he investigated the role of the actin cytoskeleton in mechanically strained epithelia. Then, he visited the research group of Marco Fritzsche in Oxford, where he took part in the developement of a new traction force microscopy platform to probe the mechanics involved in the immunological synapse (T-cells). Since 2021 he is doing his master’s at the Max Planck School of Matter to Life. In his lab rotation in Karen Alim’s group he is developing a perfusable channel lined with endothelial cells as a tool to measure mechanical forces in in vitro blood vessels.
