Unravelling the causes of rare diseases
Florian Kraft has held two post-doctoral positions, one at the Institute of Immunology Jena, where he investigated mast cell signaling, and the other at the Institute of Human Genetics Aachen, where he is studying the molecular cause of rare inherited diseases through WES, WGS, nanopore sequencing, and basic molecular techniques. Prior to these roles, Florian studied biochemistry and molecular biology at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena and completed his thesis and PhD on cancer genetics at the Institute of Human Genetics Jena.
In a recent webinar, Florian provides insight into how his team is leveraging the power of whole exome sequencing to address some of the world’s toughest challenges with regards to rare diseases. Click on the link below to learn more about his work!
