The Lab News
Congrats to Quetzalcoatl Escalante Covarrubias for his successful defense of his PhD thesis!
We are very happy and proud of this achievement, Quetzal graduating with honors after all this huge effort, with the pandemic situation and all the adversities, it´s finally done. GOOD LUCK QUETZAL FOR THE NEXT STEPS IN YOUR CAREER!!
Congrats to Román Sitten Olea for his successful defense of his BS thesis!
We welcome Alejandro Alarcón and Roberto López to the lab!!
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!
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.
We have been awarded a CONACYT-Ciencia de Frontera 2019 grant!!.
This collaborative research between the Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas and the Instituto de Fisología Celular will allow us to explore regulatory elements in the genome epigenetically driving nutritional responses. We thank CONACyT and the reviewers for this exciting opportunity!!
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!!
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
We hope to be back on track soon.
Our review is out! a collaborative effort with the Chronobiology and Metabolism laboratory at the INMEGEN.
