Dr. Julia Rogal


Julia studied Biology (B.Sc.) and Biomedical Engineering (M.Sc.) at the RWTH Aachen University,where she graduated as top of her master’s class in September 2016. During her bachelor thesis project she developed microfluidic guidance structures to focus neurons on multi-electrode arrays (MEAs). Within the scope of her master’s program, she completed an internship at the Fraunhofer Center for Manufacturing Innovation (CMI) in Boston where she learnt a lot about diagnostics of infectious diseases by using microfluidics. For her master thesis she then moved to Stuttgart and worked on the vascularization of a 3D-bioprinted bone tissue equivalent at Fraunhofer IGB. In October 2016, she joined the Loskill-Lab as a Fraunhofer TALENTA scholar in order to work with Organ-on-Chip systems with focus on adipose tissue. In her free time, Julia enjoys exercising (especially squashing/playing squash) as well as cooking hipster food with ingredients no one else in the Loskill-Lab has ever heard of – except for Johanna.
