Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry
We perform research, teach and inform about animal structure and function in health, stress, disease and production, from molecular mechanisms to whole animals.
Astrid Gumucio has been working as a research engineer since the fall of 2017 and is responsible for all the labs at AFB. She also teaches at the department. Astrid has a doctoral degree in medical science from Uppsala University and the main focus of the thesis was neurodegenerative disorders. She has a vast experience working in a lab with expertise in animal experimental methods, molecular biological methods, microscopy and immunohistochemistry.
She loves spending her spare time with family and friends, and to bake.
