Doctoral Researcher Leuven, BelgiumSeptember 2013 --- October 2017
phd thesis: "Biological effects of progranulin in axonal regeneration and frontotemporal dementia"
during my phd, i was designing and carrying out experiments in a glp environment on a daily basis, building on the expertise i obtained in a wide range of techniques working with:
- RNA: high quality extraction, qPCR, rnaseq
- DNA: Genotyping, plasmid cloning, Sequencing
- Proteins: co-ip, subcellular fractionation, Western blot, ELISA, silver staining, In Vitro Assays
- Cell Culture: Transfection, nucleofection, primary Cell Culture, facs, Immunocytochemistry
- animals (felasa certification): Neurosurgery, sample collection
- Microscopy: immunostainings, brightfield and confocal imaging (e.g. leica sp8, zeiss lsm880 with airyscan)
i frequently reported and discussed the progress of my project with my pi and other members of the Lab.
during my phd, i also trained and guided a total of 3 master students.
i presented my findings at different international conferences, making it possible to set up new successful collaborations with other Research groups.
