Title: Transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis of different microglia phenotypes
Project: The aim of my project is to get a better understanding of microglia phenotypes on the molecular level. To achieve this aim, a combinatorial approach of gene expression and epigenetic profiling of microglia in different environmental contexts, such as Alzheimer’s disease or stress will be applied.
Expertise/experience: FACS, bulk and single cell RNA sequencing, ATAC sequencing
