Miguel V. Almeida

Gurdon Institute/University of Cambridge, UK

I am a postdoctoral research associate currently in the Miska lab, at the Gurdon Institute. I have broad interests in molecular biology, genetics, developmental biology and evolution, but my work is focused on the evolution and epigenetic regulation of repetitive sequences, namely of transposable elements and telomeres.

After studying Biology in Lisbon, I have done my master and PhD theses work in Rene Ketting’s lab, based first at the Netherlands and then Germany, working on small RNA-driven gene silencing in Caenorhabditis elegans.
