Carry out your own PhD project! - In Single Cell Genomics and Mitochondrial Genetics supervised by Dr. Dr. Leif S. Ludwig (Berlin Institute of Health, Charité, Berlin Institute of Medical Systems Biology)

The Hector Fellow Academy offers you the opportunity to realize a self-developed research project under supervision of Dr. Dr. Leif S. Ludwig. He is a Hector Research Career Development Awardee working at the interface of biology and medicine. He specializes in the development and application of single cell multi-omic applications to study stem cells in hematology, immunology and oncology and how genetic variation and mutations in our mitochondrial genomes contribute to human diseases.


Single cell multi-omics, mitochondrial genetics, mitochondrial disease, hematology, immunology

Entry requirements
