Postdoctoral Fellow (2017-2019)
I received my M.Sc. degree in Biomedical Biotechnology from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain and Ph.D. degree in Stem Cell Biology and Cellular Therapy from Newcastle University in the U.K. I joined Dr. Aguilo's lab as postdoctoral fellow in September 2017. I am currently involved in different research projects including the study of regulation of pluripotency in mouse embryonic stem cells by specific zinc-finger proteins and identification of RNA modifications as potential biomarkers in breast cancer. I like playing football, fishing and snowboarding.
Research engineer (2017-2018)
Lixiao Wang got his PhD in Structural Bioinformatics from Umeå University at 2010, majoring in protein structure prediction and sequence analysis. Thereafter, he worked as a postdoc at the Department of Chemistry at Umeå University. During the postdoc, he dedicated to the development of computational methods for high-throughput protein sequence analysis. After Postdoc he worked as a bioinformatician in research groups at Umeå University with focus on next-generation sequencing data analysis. Lixiao’s favorite hobby is playing football in spare time.
Master student (2018)
Snigdha N. Rao has pursued her MSc in Molecular Biology at Umeå University, Sweden.
