Anna Savitskaya

Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry

Savitskaya Anna, PhD, is a senior researcher at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of Russian Academy of Science, Moscow, Russian Federation. Her research interests focus on microbiology, molecular genetics, and the use of microorganisms as producers of target proteins and analysis of intracellular protein interaction. Since 2008, she's been enrolled in PhD course at the Department of Chemical Technologies of Wood and Biotechnology of the Siberian State University of Science and Technology named after Academician M.F. Reshetnev, and has started working as a junior researcher at the biotechnology laboratory of the Krasnoyarsk agriculture Research Institute (Krasnoyarsk). In 2011, she underwent a six-month internship at the University of Ottawa (Canada) for which she won a grant from the President of the Russian Federation for training and internships in foreign higher educational institutions and research centers for the 2010/2011 academic year in priority areas of development of science, technology and technology in the Russian Federation. Since 2011, she has worked as a junior researcher at the Research Institute of Molecular Biology and Pathobiochemistry, KrasGMU named after prof. V.F. Voino-Yasenetsky. From 2012 to 2020, she worked as a senior lecturer/associate professor at the Department of Microbiology, KrasGMU named after prof. V.F. Voino-Yasenetsky. From 2014 to 2018, she studied at the graduate school of the University of Niigata (Japan) at the Department of Bacteriology. In 2018 she defended her thesis for a PhD degree in medical science on the topic "C-terminal dependent organization of the mycobacterial genome by a histone-like protein (C-terminal internally disturbed region-dependent organization of the mycobacterial genome by a histone-like protein)". She has carried out studies on heterogeneity of the population of fungi of the genus Fusarium, as well as studies on the selection of aptamers for bacteria S. enteritidis and S. typhymotium, and the development of testing systems using aptamers. She also did research on the role of the internal disordered region (IDR) in the functions of the mycobacterial DNA-binding protein MDP1 and its influence on the phenotype of mycobacteria. The results have been personally reported many times at international scientific conferences and published in scientific journals.
