Department Analytical Chemistry
The MiBiTox projects gathers data about the unknown role of the human microbiome in interaction with synthetic chemicals from the environment. Do the chemicals influence the microbiome? Or the other way around? And if yes, is the outcome favorable for our body and us humans, toxification or detoxification? My role is to identify possible transformation products via targeted and untargeted analysis from a simplified human gut microbiome(SIHUMIx)to zebrafish to mice and real human gut samples.
It was recommended by my former professor during my master thesis.
What better place to go when you want to work with environmental topics, research and connect one's little pond to the sea of topics done here? My PhD project is an interesting cooperation (ANA, MOLSYB, BIOTOX, IMMU) with several disciplines in an international team venturing into an unknown part of the "scientific knowledge map".
Leipzig is very similiar to my hometown Regensburg with the old city center, the river(s), cafes and parks. But it also has its own dynamics and is more experimental and creative. I also love that everything is in a bike ride's reach.
It's an environment where I can see my own potential unfolding. From the state-of-the-art equipment, a supportive and knowledgeable team and canteen with vegan options everyday, I think and feel there is nothing more to add at the moment.
One of the best way to present data is through visualization, enjoy: https://xkcd.com/1732/
