Anna (officially) joins the team!

Anna Savchenko

After a period of informal collaboration, Anna Savchenko officially joined our team in the third year of her PhD at CARIM’s Department of Cardiology. During her undergraduate studies, Anna studied genetic and metabolic engineering of microorganisms at Moscow State University. After completing her Master’s degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Tokyo, she continued her pursuit of bioengineering and travelled to Maastricht University to create and analyze in-house stem cell lines. Working under the primary supervision of Prof. Paul Volders, she investigates the mechanisms of long-term drug-induced toxicity in patient-specific stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes and heterologous expression models using molecular biology and cellular electrophysiology techniques.
