Dr. Sama ShamlooPostDoc
Sama did her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at Sapienza University of Rome, where she was a fellow of a Marie Curie network, studying novel lncRNAs involved in muscle differentiation. At CGCIII, she will work on lncRNA-miRNA interaction to explore ncRNA networks in Melanoma.
Kim Denise FischerPhD Student
Kim´s PhD research interest is dealing with the investigation of a specific lncRNA and its potential correlation to the IFNγ signaling, a pathway substantial in immunotherapy, in a melanoma patient model. This lncRNA is studied by the generation of engineered CRISPR-Cas9-based knockdown and activation cell lines, aiming to examine their response to IFNγ treatment on cell viability.
