Martina Cernakova

PhD Student

Martina received her MSc in Biology from ETH Zurich in September 2022. She worked in the Corn lab, focusing on the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in an autosomal dominant form of cerebral palsy. Martina returned to the Corn lab as a PhD student in December 2022, investigating how chemical modification of the protein backbone affects protein stability. Her research interests include protein homeostasis and functional genomics, as well as the potential application of protein engineering in biotechnology.
