Presentation title

Genetically controlled magnetic nanocompartments for cell manipulation - better than ferritin?

Mariia Efremova obtained her Ph.D. in Chemistry at the Department of Materials Science, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russian Federation. In 2019, she was awarded a Long-Term Fellowship from the Federation of the European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and then a Humboldt Research Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Thus, from 2019-to 2021, Mariia was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, with a project devoted to the bioengineering of genetically controlled magnetic nano compartments in living cells. In 2022, Mariia received the EuroTechPostdoc2 Fellowship from the EuroTech Universities Alliance and joined Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands, to work on magneto-mechanical manipulation of ion channels with synthetic antiferromagnetic nanoparticles. Mariia has authored or co-authored 25 peer-reviewed publications and has given oral talks at major international conferences including IV International Baltic Conference on Magnetism: focus on nanobiomedicine and smart materials (IBCM-2021), World Molecular Imaging Congress 2019, and others.
