J.-Y. Roignant will give a talk at the Challenge workshop held in Crans-Montana (CH), Jun. 12-16, 2023

Brain Epitranscriptomics: Novel Translational Perspectives

There are hundreds of modifications of various RNA, including mRNA, tRNA and rRNA, which control all aspects of RNA metabolism, from splicing, export, and stability to translation. Emerging evidence from recent studies has implicated critical roles of RNA modifications in various biological processes in the nervous system, from neurogenesis, development, plasticity, learning and memory, regeneration and degeneration to brain tumors, creating a new field of neuroepitranscriptomics. Many genes related to RNA modifications have been implicated in various brain disorders, from microcephaly, and seizures, to psychiatric disorders and brain cancer. This Challenge Workshop will bring together top experts from the field, who will cover the full range of studies

Welcome to Anupam!

Hello, I am Anupam Das, from Pondicherry, India. I completed my M.Sc. in Biotechnology from Pondicherry University, India in 2019.
Then I was employed as a Research Assistant at National Brain Research Centre (NBRC) in Haryana, India, under the supervision of Dr. Sourav Banerjee for two years till 2021, where I was investigating the mechanisms by which activity-dependent expression of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate translation at synapses in the hippocampus of adult rodents.

In September 2021, I got selected to the NCCR Pre-doc program for which I am joining CIG, University of Lausanne, to perform one of my 3 lab rotations (for four months) in the lab of Prof. David Gatfield from 1st November 2022, before starting my PhD studies next year.
