Molecular mechanisms of the TGFß signalling pathway in human stem cell fate choice, tissue formation and disease

My work as a postdoctoral research associate includes both scientific research as well as mentoring and teaching. My scientific studies focus on transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that govern cell fate choice of human pluripotent stem cells and tissue formation via the TGFß/Nodal-Smad2/3 signalling pathway. I provide research supervision to my younger colleagues and I am on the Editorial board of an international journal for stem cell research. My teaching responsibilities include presenting university lectures to PhD students on stem cells, tumorigenesis and cancer stem cells.
