After having finished his doctorate he was involved in the co-supervision of several medical doctoral researchers. In the project related to the Else Körner Memorial Fellowship, he will utilize modern sequencing technologies to detect complex molecular signatures with spatial resolution (spatial multi-omics) in intestinal biopsy samples from ulcerative colitis patients receiving biological therapy. The aim is to identify molecular predictors for long-term remission.
