Anastasia Levkina, MCD

I am a doctoral researcher from the Institute of Metabolism and Cell Death, started in April 2022. My projects are dedicated to discovering new molecular mechanisms of cell death in neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, Huntington etc.). My story with DINI started on our first hike to Tegernsee and the discovery of the possibility of being involved in a very supportive community. It helped me a lot during my first months of adaptation. Since then, I have understood that I want to be one to give a hand to someone in need and continue this chain of backing. I believe it is transforming the world's work, making it better. Now I’m pleased to be a part of DINI, help with various things and meet new amazing people. I would be grateful to represent our doctoral researchers around our huge community and find new opportunities to broaden our horizons.
