Rasmus Rydbirk is a biologist with a strong foundation in molecular techniques. He received his PhD in neuroscience from the University of Copenhagen in 2020 under supervision of Prof. Bente Pakkenberg. His PhD focused on bioinformatic investigations of molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disorders of the brain. Thereafter, Rasmus did a postdoc with Assoc. Prof. Konstantin Khodosevich at the Biotech Research and Innovation Centre at the University of Copenhagen. Here, Rasmus acquired extended knowledge on single-cell RNA-seq bioinformatic methods.

In 2023, he joined ATLAS as a postdoc where he is currently involved in two projects: One regards deconvolution of bulk RNA-seq data from adipose and hepatic biopsies from obese patients in relation to bariatric surgery in order to identify patient archetypes and map molecular mechanisms to disease trajectories. The second project concerns analyses of single-nucleus multiome data generated from adipose and hepatic biopsies in a similar patient cohort. Both projects aim at heightening the understanding of molecular processes in obese patients undergoing weight loss and bariatric surgery.
