Ania is a PhD candidate at the Monash node of the CCeMMP centre. She has completed her Master’s degree in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, where she utilised computational methods, for docking and SAR studies.
Ania’s project will look at CXCR3, which is a GPCR, implicated in a number of diseases, including cancer and auto-immunity. Her project will also examine the mode of activation of the receptor, by its chemokines, as well as their agonist-bound active states using Cryo-EM. She will also explore the structural and pharmacological basis of the CXCR3 inhibition by monoclonal antibodies.
