Dr Saša Šviković

Saša Šviković is a Postdoctoral Scientist at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, joining Fitzwilliam College as a Postdoctoral Associate in 2020. 

For his undergraduate degree, he read Molecular Biology and Physiology at University of Belgrade. He worked as a research associate on genetic basis of neuropsychiatric and hereditary neuromuscular disorders. In 2013, he moved to Cambridge to do a PhD at the MRC LMB, where he investigated how changes in the DNA associated with common genetic disorders (e.g. myotonic dystrophy and Huntington’s disease) can challenge the genome integrity and perturb gene expression. After completing his doctorate, he has stayed on as postdoc, investigating mechanisms involved in handling unusual genetic elements and suppressing genetic instability in vertebrate cells.
