Sonja Vermeren

sonja croppedDr Sonja Vermeren joined the MRC / UoE Centre for Inflammation Research in 2013 as a Chancellor’s Fellow. Before that, she did her PhD at the University of Cambridge, a post-doc at the MRC Laboratory for Cell Biology (UCL) and a second post-doc followed by a junior group leader position at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge. Sonja is married to another scientist with a full-time career and has two primary school age children. Both were born in the very early stages of setting up her independent lab, so Sonja is familiar with the juggling the demands of a budding family and an academic career.
