Federico Pelisch – Principal Investigator
Laura Bel Borja – Post-Doctoral Research Assistant
Laura is focusing on identifying and characterising protein complexes required for chromosome segregation in C. elegans oocytes.
Flavie Soubigou – Research Technician
We will find a nice and exciting project with Flavie very soon!
Sam Taylor – PhD Student (MRC)
Sam will be joining the lab very soon as the first PhD student…
Marketa Novotna – Wellcome Trust PhD Student
Marketa joins us for her third rotation and she is already expressing proteins and getting ready for for some protein-protein interaction analysis.
Sam Taylor – MRC DTP Rotation PhD Student
Sam focused on identifying and characterising specific phosphorylation events & their role during oocyte meiosis.
Conchita Fraguas Bringas – Honours Student
Conchita will focus her project on understanding how sumoylation and phosphorylation hold together protein complexes involved in Meiosis I.
Andrea Princz – EMBO short-term Fellow (Tavernarakis Lab)
Andrea spent two months in the lab working on SUMO modification of proteins involved in ageing and stress in C. elegans.
Carmen Espejo Serrano – Wellcome Trust PhD Student (Rotation)
Carmen spent three months in the lab working on the mechanisms of action of the SUMO E3 ligase GEI-17.
Conchita Fraguas Bringas – Summer Student (funded by Medical Research Scotland)
Conchita characterised the localisation of SUMO proteases during meiosis and mitosis in C. elegans.
