We welcome Alejandro Alarcón and Roberto López to the lab!!

01
AUG

Alejandro and Roberto will pursue their MSc degree. Alex will gather a analyze scRNA-seq data from hESC cell and define developmental trajectories in gene expression to neural progenitors, while Roberto will continue our research on the impact of NAD+ on the circadian machinery in the brain. WELCOME!!!

Welcome Iraiz Núñez Olvera and Mauricio Basulto Almeida, to the lab!

01
FEB

Iraiz will develop a new project in collaboration with Dr. César López Camarillo at UACM, in the framework of a new Ciencia de Frontera grant, to decipher regulatory roles of lncRNAs on chromatin form breast cancer cells. Mauricio will join the Ciencia de Frontera project awarded in collaboration with Dr. Mayra Furlan laboratory at IFC-UNAM.

Time to celebrate!!

First lab dinner after two very long and complicated years, it´s time to celebrate graduations, PhD candidatures and publications. Pizza time!!

We welcome Román Sitten and Luis Hernández to the lab!!

AUG

Even through we are still under closures due to COVID19 pandemic, we keep recruiting students and working from home. Roman is a rotation student from University of Guadalajara, with strong interest in circadian rhythms, metabolism and exercise. Luis is starting his PhD uncovering new and exciting molecular connections between the circadian machinery and breast cancer. WELCOME!!!

Our lab has closed down temporarily to keep all the members safe from the

COVID19 threat.

We hope to be back on track soon.
