Past members/visitors of the lab

Alper Akay

December 01, 2019

Alper started his own group at the School of Biological Sciences, University of East Anglia and his group is studying the role of RNA modifications during animal development. His group uses C. elegans as a model system to understand the genetic and biochemical mechanisms of gene expression regulation by RNA modifications.

Nemira Zilinskaite

August 31, 2019

My name is Nemira Zilinskaite, and I am graduating BSc Hons Biotechnology at the University of Nottingham in 2020. The same year I am starting PhD in Physiology, Development and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. I am joining Prof Andrea Brand’s Lab at Gurdon Institute as a Gates Scholar. My research focus will be to understand the neural stem cells quiescence and proliferation, which can later improve the regenerative therapeutics for brain damage repair and ageing.

Greta Gallina

Greta joined the lab on a BSPP summer internship while studying for her undergraduate degree at the University of Florida.

Ana Cláudia Pereira da Silva

May 18, 2019

After finishing a European MSc program in Nematology, Ana has enrolled in a PhD program on Agricultural and Environmental Sciences where she has been studying the epigenetic and transcriptomic changes occurring in galls formed by the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne javanica in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Nowadays Ana has started a researcher position at the InnovPlantProtect, a collaborative private non-profit laboratory with headquarters in Portugal, committed to develop effective protection solutions against diseases affecting crops of Mediterranean interest, as well as in the development and improvement of detection methods based on molecular and field applied technology of plant-pathogens.
