Mariana Rama Pedro Alves Predoctoral Fellow

EMBL Heidelberg

I am a Ph.D. student trying to understand the mechanisms underlying how the spatiotemporal activity of enhancers (regions bound by transcription factors that promote or repress gene expression) is regulated and contributes to complex gene expression patterns during development. I believe that it is scientists’ responsibility to foster open access and accelerate scientific progress. I am also very committed to Science Outreach, particularly radio broadcasting and interested in Science Philosophy, particularly in the interference of values in research for natural scientists.
