Ronja Rappold

BRCCH Researcher
ETH Zurich

Ronja Rappold, MSc, is a PhD student working with Prof Viola Vogel and Prof Emma Wetter Slack in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) at ETH Zurich. She is highly interested in studying how mechanobiological cues affect cell signalling, more particularly the mechanobiological impact on intestinal inflammation. In this Multi-Investigator Project, she is investigating pathology-associated extracellular matrix changes occurring in the gastrointestinal tract and other disease-implicated organs. Using immunohistochemistry and histology techniques, high-resolution imaging and advanced image analysis, she is aiming to find mechanobiological readouts that could be used as early diagnostic markers in rare genetic disorders of metabolism.
