Cristina Manatschal

Cristina Manatschal studied Biochemistry at the ETH Zürich and then moved to the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI, Villigen) to conduct her PhD thesis in the group of Prof. Michel Steinmetz. She worked on biophysical and structural aspects of the machinery that mediates the positioning of the mitotic spindle in budding yeast, a dynamic network of proteins that bind to the growing microtubule plus ends and mediate contacts to actin filaments.

In 2014 she moved to the group of Prof. Raimund Dutzler at the biochemistry Institute of UZH to work on structure and function of iron transport proteins, a project funded by NCCR TransCure and in collaboration with chemists and physiologists of the University of Bern as well as with the pharma company Vifor Pharma.

Next to her research, Cristina Manatschal has a strong commitment for teaching and public outreach and completed a CAS in higher education in 2020. In 2022 she will turn this passion into her profession and succeed PD Dr. Sergio Gloor as study and teaching coordinator.
