Welcome back to Justine!

Guess who’s back? 

I am Justine Pascual and I received my Master’s degree in Bioengineering from the University of Toulouse where I originally come from.

After moving to Switzerland, I started working in the laboratory of Fisun Hamaratoglu at the CIG on growth control and patterning in Drosophila.

Then, I joined Etienne Meylan at the EPFL to work on lung cancer, and more precisely, on the impact of microenvironment and metabolism on tumor development. But I missed flies too much!!!
Having the opportunity to fly back to the CIG, I will work with Thomas Auer and his team exploring evolutionary adaptations in the gustatory systems of closely related Drosophila species.
