Anna Wiktoria Wypijewska Del Nogal

PostDoc; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Physical Chemistry

Dr. Anna Wypijewska del Nogal, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Wilhelmsson Group, at the Division of Chemistry and Biochemistry since September 2018. She carries out a project in the frame of the MSCA-IF Fellowship, which aims at studying the interaction of pre-microRNA (pre-miRNA) with other (bio)molecules, using fluorescent base analogs (FBAs) and spectroscopy techniques. This will provide knowledge on pre-miRNA properties as well as function and might help to identify molecules of therapeutic potential for pharma industry. Anna is an active member of the Polish Biophysical Society.
