P.O. Box 208005 New Haven, USA E-mail Nationality: SpanishEMBL information Predoctoral Fellow Cohen Group Developmental Biology From 1998 to 2002 Research interests: * Zebrafish Development, * Post-transcriptional regulation by microRNAs, * Gene regulatory networks, * Systems Biology Biography Hide biographyBiography: I was born in the south of Spain (Jerez de la Frontera), and soon in my early days I got interested in chemistry (which at that time took the name of pyrotechnia). After a few years at the University of Cadiz studying chemistry, I went to Madrid to follow up my studies in Molecular Biology in the University Autonoma. During those years I had the luck of meeting one of the best Fly Geneticist, Gines Morata. I spent a wonderful year in his laboratory before going to the EMBL. At the EMBL, I certainly had the best and the worst times of my live. A wonderful lab and an amazing PI, Steve Cohen, made the perfect mentoring situation where I studied drosophila wing development and morphogens. The best came from the unlimited science and being able to control the development of a living organism using genetics. The worst came from the frustration that is present in any good, fulfilling project, and the beats that you take (they say), make you stronger. All this happened at the EMBL, which is arguably the best place to make science, with an interactive atmosphere, where I got, not only exposure to terrific science, but some of my best friends (including my wife). After four unforgettable years, infinite walks in the Haupstrasse, Sundays waterskiing, and trips to Strasbourg, I moved to New York City, to the lab of Alex Schier. With Alex and his lab, I got exposed to a scientific kaleidoscope, a great leader, a better manager and an incredible scientist. We had a perfect synergism and science could not be more fun. After three and a half years studying Zebrafish development and these new mighty microRNAs, I had the luck to start my laboratory at Yale University a great institution with incredible resources and interesting bureaucracy. In my group we are now undertaking the study of zebrafish development, and how small non-coding RNAs coordinate gene expression to shape vertebrate development.
Ville HietakangasCurrent information Postdoc, Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory 1 Research Link Singapore, Singapore E-mail Nationality: FinnishEMBL information Postdoctoral Fellow Cohen Group Developmental Biology From 05.2005 to 10.2007 Research interests: Insulin signaling, growth, metabolism Biography Hide biographyBiography: I studied biochemistry in the University of Turku and did my PhD research in the laboratory of Lea Sistonen in Turku Centre for Biotechnology (PhD in 2004). My PhD project focused on phosphorylation- and sumoylation-mediated regulation of the heat shock response in mammalian cells. In 2005 I joined the laboratory of Steve Cohen in EMBL Heidelberg, where I studied insulin/TOR signaling in tissue growth control, using Drosophila as the main research model. During my post-doctoral training in 2007 I moved to Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory in Singapore along with the Cohen lab.
