Project Title: Intergrated genetic networks underlying comorbid TS and OCD.


Short Bio

Hello, I am Joanna and I joined TS-EUROTRAIN network just at the beginning of 2014, moving from Poland to charming Nijmegen, The Netherlands. I studied Biotechnology at Poznan University of Life Sciences, Poland with one-year Erasmus exchange at Justus-Liebig University Giessen, Germany. Collaborating with the Institute of Human Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Poznan, I conducted research work for my master thesis in the field on pharmacogenomics and developed hands-on experience in molecular biology techniques. Following research interest, after studies I moved to Liverpool for Early Stage Researcher Fellowship in the Marie Curie ITN "Fighting Drug Failure". I was investigating the mechanism of steroid glaucoma through in silico approach, gaining more knowledge and experience in bioinformatics and literature review. As a PhD candidate at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and member of TS-EUROTRAIN network, I am very excited about the opportunity to develop my interest and skills working on this challenging project. I believe that through investigation of genetic pathways and networks underlying TS and related neurodevelopmental disorders, we will be able to suggest key factor molecules and genetic risks variants as possible druggable targets.
