Julian studied biomedical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Münster, earning his bachelor’s and master’s there. During his MSc he carried out an internship at Maastricht University as part of his thesis titled ‘ECG analysis of the ST segment in patients suffering from Duchenne muscular disorder’. He started his doctoral studies in December 2017 in the department of Radiology, Maastricht University. Herein, Julian works on the quantification of NADH/NAD+ in human skeletal muscle by using 31P Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.
NADH/NAD+ are important markers for metabolic health and their non-invasive in vivo quantification could lead to a better insight to energy metabolism, e.g. in patients suffering from Type II Diabetes.
