Welcome to Clara!

I am Clara Roujeau, a young French scientist. I defended my PhD in June 2016, at Institut Cochin, Paris under the supervision of Dr Ralf Jockers and Dr Julie Dam. During my PhD, I studied two new molecular mechanisms of central leptin resistance associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. In February, I join the lab of Pr Thorens at the CIG of UNIL. This would be the opportunity to expand my knowledge on type 2 diabetes, with a focus on the role of GLUT2 in the beta pancreatic cells.

Welcome to Alessandra!

I am Alessandra Boccaccini an I accomplished my PhD in “Life Science” in January 2015, at “Sapienza”, University of Rome, under the supervision of Paola Vittorioso and Prof. Paolo Costantino. My project was focused on the role of the transcription factor DAG1 during seed development and germination in Arabidopsis thaliana. After, 1-year post-doc fellowship founded by “Insituto Pasteur- Cenci Bolognetti Foundation”, I join to the group of Prof. Fankhauser as post-doc, where I am studing the regulation of phototropism in Arabidopsis.
