Institute welcomes new Ph.D. student Theresa Lüth

In 2020, Theresa Lüth completed her master thesis under the supervision of Dr. Joanne Trinh in the group “Integrative Omics Approaches in Parkinson’s Disease” and started as a Ph.D. student this year. During her Ph.D. thesis, she will investigate genetic and environmental modifiers associated with the age at onset of Parkinson’s disease and use the novel third-generation sequencing technology to explore epigenetic factors of the mitochondrial genome and its implication in the disease.
