Jian Jiang, MSc, was born on October 18th 1982, in Beijing, China. She got her Bachelor’s degree in the field of ‘Preventive Medicine’ from Peking University Health and Medical center. After her bachelor study she worked at the Tissue Engineering Department in Beijing JiShuiTan Hospital for several years.
Then, in 2009 she started her Master study “Nutrition and Health” at the Wageningen University, specialized in Molecular Nutrition. During her master she did two theses in Human Nutrition and Human and Animal Physiology Department in Wageningen, entitled ‘Identifying interacting proteins of angiopoietin-like protein 4’ and ‘Molecular effects of quercetin on hepatic lipid metabolism’ , respectively. After graduation, on the 15th of March 2012, she started working as a PhD at the Toxicogenomics Department of Maastricht University on the project entitled: ‘Drug Induced Liver Injuries: Studying the underlying mechanisms’.
The aims of this project are to explore the underlying mechanisms of drug induced liver injuries by using acetaminophen as a model compound and to develop new omics-based strategies for the prediction of toxicity using in vitro cell systems.
