Aleksandra Trifunovic, PhD

Professor at the Medical Faculty


Prof. Dr. Aleksandra Trifunovic and her research group are investigating mitochondrial stress responses and the cell’s corresponding adaptive reactions. By deciphering the signaling cascades, they are seeking to understand the pathomechanisms of mitochondrial diseases and develop new therapeutic approaches. The group has recently started collaborating with Khondrion, one of the first European companies aiming to develop drugs to treat mitochondrial diseases. Prof. Dr. Trifunovic’s group will focus on evaluating the therapeutic effects in model organisms.
