Victor Pavlenko, PhD
Curiosity to learn about the mechanisms that enable existence of living organisms was the driving force for Victor to study biology in the first place. At Apollo as the intersection of biology and business he is using his passions to help creating, launching and developing our portfolio companies.
Before joining Apollo, Victor worked at a Berlin based fast growing FinTech startup in order to deepen his venture building skills. During his PhD at the Cologne Cluster of Excellence CECAD he dedicated himself to improve our understanding of mitochondrial dysfunction in aging and neurodegeneration by researching factors involved in mitochondrial biogenesis.
