The research topic of my PhD revolves around stress response including its effects on metabolism and health in general. By establishing preclinical stress protocols and employing a variety of methods like µPET/CT-Imaging, Immunoassays, Omics, FACS, etc., I aim to gain further insight into this complex topic and help to understand how stress affects our body.
