Yara E. Sánchez Corrales

MRC - Laboratory of Molecular Biology

I am a postdoctoral scientist in the group of Dr. Katja Röper at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (Cambridge, United Kingdom). My main interest is in understanding how biological shapes are generated during development. Currently, I am using a multidisciplinary approach to study the cell dynamics and molecular basis of tubular organ formation during embryonic development using the fruit fly as a model.

I completed my PhD at the John Innes Centre (JIC) in United Kingdom under the supervision of Dr. Veronica Grieneisen and Prof. Enrico Coen. My doctoral research focused on the study of the cell growth and shape dynamics that underlies organ formation in plants.

Outside the lab, I enjoy cooking (especially Mexican food!), gardening and travelling.
