I'm Sasha and I'm a

Hi! My name is Aleksandra A. Zagulyaeva.

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) in Cambridge, MA. Before joining NIBR, I received my undergraduate degree in Organic Chemistry from M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, my Masters in Organic Chemistry from the University of Minnesota Duluth, and my doctoral degree in Chemical Biology from the University of Florida. My doctoral research was aimed at elucidating the mechanism of action of MbtH-like protein (MLP), an integral component of many bacterial NRPS systems producing pharmaceutically valuable bioactive compounds. Understanding how MLPs work has important implications for developing antimicrobial therapies as well as for the production of novel molecular scaffolds for medicinal applications.

I have experience in multiple areas of chemistry, ranging from multistep synthesis of target compounds to crystallization and structure determination of protein complexes. At NIBR, I am working in biosystems engineering and aim to further antimicrobial research in the future.
