Vivi Talstad Monsen

  • Senior Engineer; PhD

Vivi T. Monsen has a M.Sc degree in Biotechnology and a PhD degree in Molecular Medicine from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Her background includes studying DNA repair mechanisms, protein structure-activity relationships, and cellular stress response mechanisms like autophagy.
She has been working at the Institute for Surgical Research for several years and studies mechanisms contributing to tissue repair and fibrosis, focusing on a family of matricellular proteins/growth factors called CCN proteins.
