Postdoctoral Fellow

«Our study highlights the complexity of p38 functions, both in cancer and in the maintenance of normal tissues. It shows why an inhibitor of this molecule could effectively have undesirable side effects. But these do not exclude it from being a target against cancer.»

former PhD student in the Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation Lab

«We suspected that CPEB1, a protein involved in regulating mRNA translation in the cytoplasm, might also be active in the nucleus and play a role in controlling pre-mRNA processing. We discovered that it affects the alternative generation in the mature mRNA of the 3'-UTR, regions where most of the elements regulating translation in time and space are located.»
