A PhD position is open in our group starting October, 2018, about RNA splicing in cancers. Please contact us for more information, or follow the link.

The cells in a multicellular organism have very different functions and aspects. This is permitted by a tight control of gene expression. We are interested in linking human disease and vertebrate development with "post-transcriptional" controls of gene expression, which are exerted at a particular level on a molecule named RNA.
