Barbora Salovska

Role: Community and Networking Committee Member


Bara is a postdoctoral associate in the Yale School of Medicine, Department of Pharmacology.  
She earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, where she applied phosphoproteomics to analyze cellular signalling triggered by DNA damage. As a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Molecular Genetics in Prague, Czech Republic she investigated the role of oxidative stress in cellular senescence by redox proteomics.  
Following a previous six-month internship at Yale in 2018-2019, Bara joined Dr. Liu’s lab in the Yale Cancer Biology Institute on West Campus in January 2021, and her research now focuses on establishing bioinformatic pipelines for the analysis of DIA-proteomic and phosphoproteomic data and the analysis of protein phosphorylation in cancer cell response to drug treatment and cellular response to genome dosage imbalance.  
After spending her first pandemic months at Yale in isolation, she was very grateful she could meet her now very good friends through the events organized by YPA, and she soon decided to become a part of this awesome postdoc community. As one of the coordinators of the Community and Networking committee she is involved in organizing fun events to bring postdocs together and have some fun!
