Marziyeh Ghaeidamini

Postdoc; Biology and Biological Engineering, Chemical Biology

Marziyeh Ghaeidamini is a Post-doc at the Chemical Biology division. Her primary research focus is on the Formation and aggregation of misfolded proteins which is a key hallmark of several age-related neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s (PD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Marziyeh has experience in several fields like nanotechnology and inorganic chemistry. Also, she is a specialist in the synthesis and characterization of different kinds of nanoparticles. Marziyeh first joined Elin Esbjörner Winters’ group in Chalmers as an exchange PhD student in February 2018. She studied protein aggregation and protein interaction with Nanoparticles using biophysical techniques such as fluorescence spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy. Her new research is combined with live-cell studies to investigate the toxic properties of amyloid aggregates.
