About Sandra Malmgren Hill
I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in the cellular influence of aberrant and misfolded proteins and its role in disease and aging. Highly experienced in molecular and biochemical studies of protein quality control in single cell eukaryotes and mammalian cells, where I have focused on the link between protein management and intracellular trafficking pathways such as autophagy and endocytosis.
I finished my doctoral studies in the end of 2015, obtaining a PhD in biology at the Faculty of Science of University of Gothenburg, Sweden. I did my doctoral studies in the lab of Professor Thomas Nyström at the department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, studying cellular aging and protein quality control in the unicellular yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
In 2017 I started as a post-doc researcher in Professor David Rubinsztein's lab at Cambridge University, funded by fellowships from EMBO and the Swedish Research council (VR). In my postdoctoral research project I am studying the regulation of autophagy, and the involvement of this process in neurodegeneration and cancer, working with mammalian cell culture and combining conventional techniques in biochemistry and cell biology with modern high-throughput methods of CRISPR/Cas9 screening and next-generation sequencing.
