Huy is excited to look at the effects of extreme stresses, including zero gravity and desiccation, on chromatin nanostructure in human cells. This is especially thrilling as it will get us, as a human race, one step closer to being able to explore other planets and deeper regions of the Universe.
Welcome Jumana Alhaj Abed! Jumana is a postdoc interested in the intricacies of everything biology! She will be trying to understand the mechanisms of homolog pairing using super-resolution microscopy.
A new pioneer joins the lab, Nuno Martins, bringing the topic of centromeres with him!
He will attempt to break new ground by visualizing (neo)centromere folding and topology by super-resolution microscopy, for the first time in-situ, in several different species.
