ABOUT US

HALLO, I AM MAIKE

I am 26 years old and from the south of Germany. I have been living in London for 4 years now. In October 2020, I started my PhD at the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London. My research focuses on Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.

Next to my passion about science (and my bigger passion: talking about it), I love spending time outdoors, discovering countries, cities and meeting people.

My current life motto: “The journey is what brings us happiness, not the destination”.

SALUT, I AM SALINA

I was born and raised in France, but have been living in London for 5 years. I am a first year PhD student at the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London. My research focuses on Chronic Thrombeombolic Pulmonary Hypertension; I am also passionate about women’s health and gender-based medicine.

When not in the lab, you will most likely find me outside running or cycling, or at the gym lifting weights.

My favourite quote: “Always reach for the moon, because even if you miss it, you will land into the stars”.
