I am a scientist with a strong interest in cancer biology. Currently, I am leading an effort to gain further insights into physiologically relevant events that mark the transit through cell division stages, working as a postdoc in Dr. Emmanuel Boucrot's lab at the Institute of Structural & Molecular Biology (ISMB) in UCL, after transitioning from my PhD training in Cancer Research under the supervision of Prof. Alan Ashworth at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London.
My research has focused on identifying and characterizing proteins which functional status have the ability to regulate cell division (for instance in the context of an anti-cancer treatment), with the ultimate goal of facilitating the translation of such knowledge into therapeutic strategies that could restrict cancer impact. Use of state-of-the art technology, such as large-scale (i) proteomics and (ii) RNA interference screening, has been part of the technical arsenal used by the research groups I have had the opportunity to join so far, with the aim to further elucidate the control of cycles of cell division.
