Professor Vlad Pena's team focuses on the structural basis of human pre-mRNA processing under normal, pathological and drug-induced conditions.
Professor Vlad Pena uses biochemistry, electron cryo-microscopy and X-ray crystallography to understand splicing regulation and the connections between splicing and other gene expression processes. He is a Professor of Structural Biology and Gene Expression at the ICR.
Imogen is a PhD student in the Division of Structural Biology focused on designing small molecule splicing modulators, in collaboration with the Centre for Cancer Drug Discovery.
Tiffany is a postdoctoral fellow who works on SF3B functions relevant to cancer.
Judit is a higher scientific officer studying the regulation of RNA processing.
Negar is a PhD student working on splicing helicases.
Gus explores the modulation of gene expression by oncolytic viruses.
Csaba is a postdoctoral fellow working on splicing regulation.
Hyunah is a postdoctoral fellow who studies the regulation of alternative splicing.
Ioana is a PhD student focused on splicing mechanisms.
I am a PhD student and I’m interested in understanding the functions and structure of the splicing molecular machinery and capture its linking to other close related events in gene expression.
