Abstract Title: Urinary metabolic profiles associated with 5-year changes in biomarkers of glucose homeostasis: an NMR spectroscopy based study

Wednesday 15:30 - 16:00

In 2007 Maik started his studies on biomathematics, with key aspect in statistics and ecology, at the university Greifswald and graduated in 2013. Afterwards he joined the Metabolomics working group at the Institute of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine at the University Medicine Greifswald. During his Ph.D thesis he worked on the influence of thyroid function and novel thyroid hormone metabolites on the metabolome of plasma and urine, with a special emphasize on complementary diagnostic signatures. His current research focus is on metabolome-wide association studies to diverse metabolic phenotypes, covering endocrine and metabolic diseases.
