Post-doctoral Scientist (2018-Present)
Dr. Fumi Suomi has a multidisciplinary training background with extensive experience in mitochondrial cell biology. She completed her undergraduate studies in Japan (B.Sc. - Kansai University & M.Sc. - Kyoto University), where she focused on enzymology in fission yeast. Following this, she undertook doctoral research at the University of Oulu, Finland. Here, Dr. Suomi developed an interest in mitochondrial signalling in mammals and graduated with a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Through undertaking TEKES-funded postdoctoral research at Oulu, she diversified her expertise and developed skills in live cell imaging in 3D culture conditions to be applied to high throughput image analysis and machine learning. Subsequently, she relocated to the University of Helsinki to work on mitochondrial membrane dynamics in coordination with mitochondrial translation with Brendan Battersby. Here she developed extensive experience in mitochondrial biochemistry and cell biology. She actively co-organises the Viikki Biocampus Women's Life Science Network at the University of Helsinki. In 2018, she joined the McWilliams lab to pursue research into mitochondrial quality control in health and disease.
