Maria Kløjgaard Skytthe

PhD Fellow
Dept. of Molecular Medicine


Maria K. Skytthe graduated from University of Southern Denmark in June 2019 as a Master of Science (MSc) in Pharmacy. Since 2017 she has been a member of the research group of Professor Søren K. Moestrup and Associate professor Jonas Graversen, where she did her master thesis on production and characterization of specific monoclonal antibodies and establishment of quantitative ELISA methods for the plasma proteins haptoglobin and haptoglobin-related protein.
Maria has been employed as a PhD student since February 2020 and she is working with drug targeting of an anti-inflammatory antibody-drug conjugate in NASH mouse models. The transcriptional effect of the treatment will be examined at the cellular level by single-cell sequencing to investigate the interplay of the various hepatic cells.
