Project summary

Nicole studied medicine at the University of Innsbruck, Austria and the University of Freiburg, Germany. Following her qualification with an intercalated thesis in 1999, she worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Medicine at the University of Innsbruck. She interrupted her clinical specialist training in internal medicine in 2004, joining the coagulation and haemostasis laboratory at the New England Medical Center at Tufts University, USA for a second postdoctoral fellowship. There she studied the biology of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in coagulation and inflammation. After returning to Austria she completed her clinical specialist training, and with a professorial thesis on inflammation and coagulation was promoted to Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Innsbruck in 2010. After career breaks for family reasons and relocating to the UK, Nicole is now based at the University of Cambridge in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, where she studies the function of GPR35, an orphan GPCR.
