Research Profile

Eleni Chouri is a postdoctoral fellow in Immunoengineering research group at the department of Biomedical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Her current research focuses on understanding immune cell heterogeneity and immune cell interactions using droplet-based microfluidics platform. Deciphering immune cell responses at a single level could provide a useful tool to unravel the dynamics of immune cells in health and disease. Her academic background on translational immunology, epigenetics and transcriptomics would allow her to explore in a greater detail single immune cell functions.

Academic Background

Eleni Chouri obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2010. During her bachelor studies she followed the major track in genetics, molecular biology and biotechnology. In 2008 as a part of her bachelor education, she did an exchange programme at the University of Barcelona. In 2011 she started a master programme (MSc) in Biomedical sciences in Utrecht University. She performed her three master research projects in the Department of Clinical Chemistry and Hematology in Utrecht University Medical Center (UMCU) in the Netherlands, in the Research Institute Princesa of the hospital Santa Cristina in Madrid and in the Laboratory of Translational Immunology in UMCU. After she obtained her master degree, in 2014 she started her PhD in the Department of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology and the Laboratory of Translational Immunology under the supervision of Professor Timothy Radstake and Dr. Marzia Rossato. Her doctoral research focused on the role of microRNAs and plasmacytoid dendritic cells in the pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis and primary Sjogren’s syndrome. In 2019, she joined the group of Immunoengineering in TU/e as a postdoctoral fellow.
