Julian Krauskopf studied bioinformatics at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of Applied Sciences Gießen where he graduated in May 2012. His graduate thesis he accomplished at the University of Amsterdam where he developed a microarray-based method to enrich cancer-related genes for high throughput sequencing.
After his graduation, he started working as a support bioinformatician at the Applied Bioinformatics Department of Wageningen University where he was involved in several next-generation sequencing based projects.
In February 2013 he started as a PhD student at the Department of Toxicogenomics at Maastricht University. Here he was involved in several European funded projects such as the Exposomics and EnviroGenomarkers projects as well as other international projects. Under the supervision of Prof. dr. Jos Kleinjans and Prof. dr. Theo de Kok he investigated the influence of xenobiotics on the human microRNA machinery and the potential of microRNAs as biomarkers for human toxicity testing. This work is presented in this thesis: “The blood-borne miRNome - Developing biomarkers for environmental and drug-induced human toxicity”.
Since July 2017 he started working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Toxicogenomics at Maastricht University to further investigate the role of microRNAs and their potential as a new class of biomarkers.
