Mitzis, I am so happy and grateful that I could ride this adventure with you nutters! I'm still amazed by how well we fit together and always looked out for each other. Always together from the start, always together across the finish line. Most of you I met for the first time on the way to the opening event and we left others with the impression that we'd been riding together for years. I couldn't have hoped for a better team spirit on this journey. I really hope that we get the chance to do something crazy like this again 😘❤️

I left it all out on the tracks, but I couldn't resist trying to muster up the last remaining power for a bike lift photo at the finish line 😅 #oneobsession I really don't know if I'm rather happy that we all made it as a team and always looked out for each other #mitziandfriends, or whether I'm rather sad that it's all over. How about a #tourdefriends in Norway soon? 😁

About

Alexandra K. Diem Alexandra K. Diem

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Simula Research Laboratory in Oslo, Norway. Using tools and techniques from both mathematics and engineering I simulate cardiac perfusion of nanoparticle drug delivery via inhalation (CUPIDO project). The incidence of cardiovascular diseases is constantly on the rise and poses a major death threat. Nanoparticle drug delivery provides a promising avenue for noninvasive and safe treatment of various cardiovascular diseases.

Previously I was Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Southampton, UK and investigated lymphatic drainage in the brain, trying to resolve the driving mechanisms behind it and its failure during age. This is particularly relevant for Alzheimer’s disease. As we age our brain’s lymphatic system slows down and if it fails entirely protein deposits in the walls of arteries lead to the onset of dementia. My PhD thesis deals with the investigation of the role of arterial pulsations as a potential major driving mechanism.
