Julia Drylewicz is a full-time researcher within the Computational Immunology Core of the Center for Translational Immunology (CTI) of the UMC Utrecht bringing methodological support to researchers from the design of a project to its publication.

She was trained in Biostatistics and Epidemiology at Bordeaux School of Public Health (ISPED, France) and graduated in Biomathematics from Paris V University (France) in 2006. She obtained her PhD in biostatistics at Bordeaux University (France) in 2009. From 2010 till 2014, she performed postdoctoral research in computational and quantitative immunology under the supervision of José Borghans in the Department of Immunology at the UMC Utrecht and collaborated with Rob de Boer in the Utrecht Center for Quantitative Immunology at Utrecht University. Her research focused on quantifying cell dynamics in health and disease using mathematical modeling to analyze stable-isotope labeling experiments.

Since 2014, she collaborates with many groups on multidisciplinary projects within the CTI and aim at closing the gap between experimental and theoretical work by using biostatistics, bioinformatics and computational approaches. Some of her most recent projects involve modeling cell homeostasis in human, defining the optimal time of maternal vaccination for RSV infection, determining endotypes of atopic dermatitis patients based on serum biomarkers measured by Luminex and analyses of Olink data.
