Nina DiFabion


Nina completed her training as a Medical Laboratory Technician at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität of Würzburg in 2006. She briefly joined the University Hospital’s Medical Clinic II, where she helped develop a standardized assay for chimerism analysis after allogeneic stem cell transplantation and investigated defined chromosomal translocations and point mutations. At the end of 2007, Nina relocated to the USA, where she took a Research Technologist position working for the Center for Inherited Disease Research at Johns Hopkins University. She dedicated the next 11 years processing samples in a high-throughput genotyping and sequencing lab, where she advanced to a Senior Lab Coordinator and then to a Research Specialist, contributing to the advancement of a high-throughput sequencing platform. In August 2019, Nina joined the Saliba lab. Since 2022, she is part of the Single-Cell Center Würzburg, where she is performing Smartseq2, 10x Genomics and other NGS-based assays. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, practicing yoga and admiring nature.
