PhD Student

Julia graduated the pharmacy master programme at the University of Vienna. As PhD student she is now involved in the RISK-HUNT3R project, where she focuses on the creation of in silico based new approach methods for prediction of chemical toxicity. The aim of her doctoral project is to model and investigate the molecular interactions between transporters involved in the hypothalamic–pituitary–thyroid axis and possible disruptors. The goal is to acquire a more profound understanding of molecular initiating events leading to an imbalance in thyroid hormone homeostasis and in further consequence to the adverse outcome developmental neurotoxicity.
