I am Nermin Abolnaga. I am a SUR participant in UNIL, currently working in Dr. Maria Gambetta’s Lab at the CIG.
I’ll be helping Ms. Anastasia Semanova tackle a couple of question marks surrounding insulator gene sequences.
I have found Switzerland to be welcoming and found Gambetta’s lab even more so. I come from Cairo, Egypt, and will be starting my senior year at the University of Science and Technology in Zewail City once I get back. During my sophomore and junior years, I worked with Dr. Mohamed Elhadidy at the Center For Genomics in Zewail City. I was in charge of hunting down integrons in bacterial isolates and characterizing them once captured.
Excited to meet everyone at the CIG!
