Marwa Peters Al Bayati

PhD Student

Marwa Peters Al-Bayati received her MSc in Biology from ETH Zurich in February 2023. She worked in the lab of Prof. Dr. Yves Barral, with the focus on developing an inducible gene-knockout system to investigate the role of Slx5 in chromosome segregation in budding yeast. Marwa joined the Corn Lab as a PhD student in March 2023. Her work is on how chemical modification of semi-synthetic model protein affects protein degradation and finding the cellular machinery mediating this process. Her research interests include functional genomics, protein quality control, protein homeostasis as well as potential application in protein engineering for therapeutic purposes.
