Margrethe Gaardløs obtained her M.Sc. in Biotechnology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in 2015, working on biochemical characterization of lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases. She obtained a PhD in Biotechnology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, supervised by Professor Finn Aachmann and co-supervised by Anne Tondervik. During her PhD she studied the alginate epimerases produced by Azotobacter vinelandii. The work focused on understanding the enzyme-substrate interactions, mechanism and mode of action of these enzymes through mutational studies and biochemical and biophysical analysis ([1], [2], [3]). She is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Sergey Samsonov at University of Gdańsk, Poland, where she works with computational modeling of glycosaminoglycans, various proteins, and their interactions.
