Ellen Gammelmark

PhD fellow
Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology


Ellen has been a member of the research group of Susanne Mandrup since 2018, where she has been involved with work on transcriptional regulation in adipocytes during the development of obesity. 

Ellen, who has conducted her master's project as part of ATLAS, has been employed as a PhD student in ATLAS from September 2020 and has received a PhD scholarship from the Danish Diabetes Academy. The overarching aim of her PhD project is to understand adipose tissue plasticity and crosstalk between adipocytes and macrophages at single-cell resolution during regression of obesity. Her work includes the use of mouse- and human model systems, and application of RNA-sequencing at bulk-, cell-type specific-, and single-cell resolution.
