Welcome to Anastasiia !

My name is Anastasiia, but everyone calls me Nana. I am from Ukraine, and I am excited to be starting my PhD at the Gambetta lab here at the CIG!

I’ve got both my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Biology from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. During my studies, I did an internship at Karolinska Institutet(2016), investigating the role of MRP S18-2 in the process of epithelial–mesenchymal transition. In 2018, I completed an internship in Microbiology at Umea University (Cava group), working on peptidoglycan modifications in B. thailandensis. My Master thesis, titled “DNA loop domains organisation in glioblastoma cell lines” included investigation of chromatin reorganisation in cancer cells under different growth conditions.

Outside my scientific interests, I am passionate about creative writing, Scandinavian culture and exploring the great outdoors.
