First Person: Interview with Lotte De Winde about her recent publication in Journal of Cell Science

"First Person is a series of interviews with the first authors of a selection of papers published in Journal of Cell Science, helping early-career researchers promote themselves alongside their papers. Lotte de Winde is the first author on ‘C-type lectin-like receptor 2 (CLEC-2)-dependent dendritic cell migration is controlled by tetraspanin CD37’, published in Journal of Cell Science. Lotte conducted the research in this article while a PhD student at the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, The Netherlands, under the supervision of Prof. Annemiek van Spriel and Prof. Carl Figdor. She is now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the lab of Dr Sophie Acton at the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, UK. Here, she studies the plasma membrane organisation and dynamics of podoplanin and its partner proteins on fibroblastic reticular cells (FRCs), and how changes in this organisation shape downstream signalling and FRC function."
