Curriculum Vitae

Gerda Mawududzi Sanvee graduated with a Master of Science in Medical Biology at the University of Lausanne in 2014. She did her master work on polarized Wnt proteins secretion in breast cancer cells in the department of Pharmacology under the supervision of Prof. Vladimir Katanaev.

She joined the research group of Prof. Dr. Stephan Krähenbühl in Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology as a PhD student end of 2014. Her work focused on molecular mechanisms of simvastatin-induced myopathy and insulin resistance. She obtained a Master of Science in Toxicology in 2017, and her PhD in 2019.

She is currently a Postdoctoral researcher in the division of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology. Her current research focuses on the in vitro and in vivo characterization of the regulation of mTORC2 signaling in simvastatin-induced myopathy.
