I am Carmen, a 4th year Ph.D student in the lab of prof. Chris Marine at the Center for Cancer Biology (VIB-KU Leuven) in Belgium. I am currently doing the final year of my doctorate studies in Biomedical Sciences in the lab of Dr. Tom Misteli at the Center for Cancer Research, NCI/NIH in Bethesda, USA. My research focuses on a long non-coding RNA that gives rise to a nuclear body, so I am most likely to post about non-coding RNA, nuclear architecture and gene transcription/regulation, but I am fascinated by many things in the biological world so it could be just as well any other random topic I really like or stumbled upon!
Apart from science, I love cooking and generally food, contemporary dance, and people (I think everybody has a ‘thing’ and I like to discover that!).
I hope you will enjoy reading my posts!
