Welcome to my website and blog. I write about things that excite me, my research and the biology of the body – from top to toe, silly to scientific. I write about science, synthetic biology and immuno-oncology over at @mikebarnkob@fediscience.org / @mikebarnkob.dk and run the CAR-T Grease Monkeys monthly newsletter about all things related to chimeric antigen receptor therapies.

I am a doctor at the Department of Clinical Immunology at Odense University hospital, where I develop new cellular-based therapies against cancer. I’ve trained at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and did my Ph.D. in Professor Vincenzo Cerundolo’s lab at Oxford University.

Please have a look around and do get in touch.
