Field of interest: Data Integration, Visualization, Pathway and Network Analysis, and interpretation of large biological datasets
Dr. Sacha Bohler was born in Luxembourg-City in 1980. He started his higher education in general biology at the Luxembourg University Center in 2000. Then, he studied Cell biology and Physiology at the University of Nancy, specializing in plant Science. He obtained his Masters in Forest, Agronomy and Environmental Sciences from Nancy University in 2006. He spent the next four years carrying out his PhD in Nancy University in collaboration with the Centre de Recherche Public Gabriel Lippmann (now LIST) in Luxembourg, where he carried out most of his research. During this time he studied the effects of the environmental pollutant Ozone on Poplar plants, and gained expertise in Molecular Biology, especially Proteomics. He obtained his PhD in Plant Science in November 2010.
Dr. Bohler then moved to Belgium and carried out two postdoc projects at Hasselt University in the Centre for Environmental Sciences. There he studied the effects of the toxic trace element Cadmium on Arabidopsis plants. He improved his knowledge of Proteomics and added Gene Expression Analysis to his set of skills. Interested in a holistic view of biological systems, he is a strong advocate of a multi-omics approach. He is experienced in Statistics, Data Integration, Visualization, Pathway and Network Analysis, and interpretation of large biological datasets.
Dr. Bohler joined the group of Toxicogenomics at Maastricht University in July 2015, working on the project LCSB, with the objective to elucidate environmental-genome interactions that can lead to Parkinson's disease.
