Dr. Nikita Verheyden
Nikita studied biochemistry at the EKU Tübingen (Bachelor) and the MLU Halle (Master), completing his Master’s thesis about epigenetic influences on long non-coding RNA expression in the Lab of Michael Kobor at the CMMT (Vancouver, Canada). He continued with the research for his Ph.D. thesis at the lab of Andreas Krueger at the GU Frankfurt and JLU Giessen, investigating the context dependent gene regulation facilitated by miR-181 in mice. For this study, he employed multiple omics approaches such as ribosome profiling, miR-eCLIP and quantitative mass spectrometry. Since 2023, he been working as a postdoc in the Münch group, mainly tasked with automizing and improving analysis pipelines for mass spectrometry.
