Host: Dr Carla Martins

Speaker Background:

The aim of the laboratory is to unveil fundamental biological mechanisms and understand how these become perturbed during diseases, most prominently cancer, with the ambition that our findings may contribute to the development of clinical tools. We focus mainly on various classes of non-coding RNAs, such as microRNAs, snoRNAs, tRNAs and lncRNAs. In addition, we study RNA binding proteins and RNA modifications. Special focus areas include the regulation of central tumor suppressor pathways and autophagy.
