Group Leader (1) 1988-1995 Institute of Molecular Pathology (I.M.P), Vienna.
Research area: Mammalian Developmental Genetics, focus on genomic imprinting. (5 + 3 year position). Elected EMBO member in 1995
Group leader (2) 1996 ? 2001 (May) The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Research area: links between mammalian development and tumor genetics (Permanent position)
Head, Department of Developmental Genetics, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Institute of Molecular Biology, Salzburg, Austria. From 1st June 2000 (Permanent position)
General scientific interest:
1. Mammalian development in mice and the involvement of developmental genes in human disease. The last 10 years, focus on genomic imprinting function and mechanism. We earlier identified the mouse Igf2r gene as an imprinted gene also demonstrated that this gene uses a methylation imprint to express the maternal allele. Many imprinted genes now appear to carry methylation imprints that act to express the active allele. Silencing of the paternal Igf2r allele was recently shown to involve a regulatory non-coding RNA named Air . Future work will investigate the mechanism of silencing by non-coding RNAs and their general application to silencing imprinted genes. July 25, 2002.

Current information Senior Lecturer, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine Pembroke Place Liverpool, United Kingdom E-mail Nationality: BritishEMBL information Postdoctoral Fellow Lehrach Group Developmental Biology From 1984 to 1987 Biography Hide biographyBiography: My main interests are the mechanisms of cytoadherence in Plasmodium falciparum and the analysis of the binding sites on the variant surface antigen (PfEMP-1) and host molecules for cytoadherence. These questions are being addressed using a range of approaches including;
1) Expression of regions from var genes in heterologous systems for functional analysis
2) Analysis of natural polymorphisms in ICAM-1 on adhesive interactions
3) Detailed mapping of the binding site on ICAM-1 for infected erythrocytes
4) Flow-based adhesion studies on purified proteins and cultured endothelium as an ex-vivo model of cytoadherence
5) Inhibition of adhesion as a therapeutic intervention
6) Use of genome sequence information and functional genomics to address problems in cytoadherence
