Beata Kusmider

Coordinator
Business Development

What I do at MMV:

As a member of the Business Development team, I provide logistical, administrative and scientific support in partnering, alliance management and outsourcing activities.

Why I work at MMV:

Working at MMV is an extension of what inspired me to become a biologist: a desire to improve the health of others. I am proud that I can help advance MMV’s goal of reducing the burden of a life-threatening disease which ravages oft-neglected populations. I also enjoy working in a multidisciplinary environment where I can exchange expertise with knowledgeable colleagues.

More about me:

Prior to joining MMV, I worked as a researcher in cell and molecular biology for 8 years. I hold a PhD in molecular life sciences from the University of Geneva and an engineering degree in biotechnology from the Lodz University of Technology. I am also a passionate science communicator.

Ask me about:

Biology, scientific research and how to communicate effectively to diverse audiences. You can also ask me about best climbing spots around Geneva and how to paint with watercolors.
