A big and warm welcome to our new PhD student Francesca Masoni. Francesca got her Biology Bachelor’s and her Molecular Biology and Genetics Master’s degree in Pavia. We are looking forward to all the exciting science!
Congratulations to our PhD student Marlena Lübke for being awarded a prestigious Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds fellowship ( https://www.bifonds.de/fellowships-grants/phd-fellowships.html )! The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds is a foundation that promotes basic research in biomedicine. Her project will investigate the regulators of promoter activity that act via CpG density.
Our latest study on how ISWI and SWI/SNF differentially regulate TF binding and chromatin structure in mouse ESCs is finally out in Nature.
