Biosketch In 2011, Michiel Wijnveld obtained his bachelor’s degree in life sciences, focussing on
microbiology and molecular biology, at the Saxion University of Applied Science, Deventer,
The Netherlands. After obtaining his degree he worked at the Utrecht Centre for Tick-borne
Diseases (UCTD) in Utrecht, The Netherlands until 2013. In 2013 Michiel Wijnveld moved to
Vienna and started working at the Medical University of Vienna, working in professor Gerold
Stanek’s lab, continuing his work on ticks and tick-borne pathogens.
In 2018, Michiel Wijnveld started his PhD studies (immunology) at the Medical University with
the title “Distribution profile and transmission dynamics of tick-borne human pathogens”.
During these studies, Michiel Wijnveld detected novel Babesia species affecting humans,
investigated the transmission dynamics of rickettsiae and isolated and cultivated a unique
Austrian strain of Rickettsia raoultii.
Throughout his work Michiel Wijnveld setup numerous successful national and international
co-operations in which he worked in laboratories in for example, South Africa and Scotland.
Furthermore, Michiel Wijnveld co-organised international symposia (ITPD2017/2019) and
was a chairperson at multiple occasions. Also, he was an invited speaker at several
international symposia and obtained poster and oral presentation awards.
