Biography -


Adriana joined the Industrial Liaison Office in November 2019 as a cryo Electron Microscopy scientist to support industry clients throughout sample preparation, data acquisition and structure determination using latest generation microscopes at electron Bio-Imaging Centre for Industry, eBIC4i.
She has experience in both classic and advanced blot-free sample preparation techniques for electron microscopy. Before joining our team, Adriana worked on method development for cryo EM as a postdoc at eBIC. She joined Diamond in May 2018 from the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds, where she studied muscle proteins by negative staining and cryo EM.
Previously, Adriana worked as a postdoc in the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, where she studied assembly of the F-type ATP synthase using Atomic Force Microscopy. She obtained her PhD at the Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, where she studied structure and assembly of various membrane proteins by AFM at the Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC).
In 2013–2016, Adriana was an invited member of the Scanning Probe Microscopy Section of the Royal Microscopical Society.
On top of her strong background in structural biology, Adriana strengthens our team with her extensive experience in cutting-edge sample preparation techniques, including practical knowledge of expression systems and protein purification from native mammalian tissues combined with her background in microbiology.
