SciLifeLab seminar series-Campus Solna, Andrea Pauli, Small proteins with big roles

Andrea (Andi) Pauli obtained her PhD in Kim Nasmyth’s lab at Oxford University, UK, where she provided the first direct evidence that the protein-complex cohesin has essential non-mitotic functions. For her postdoc, Andi joined Alex Schier’s lab at Harvard University, USA.While her original goal was to identify functional lncRNAs during zebrafish embryogenesis, Andi’s research led to two key discoveries that have shaped her research since: first, translation is widespread outside of protein-coding regions; and second, these newly discovered translated regions can encode functionally important short proteins. In September 2015, Andi established her own lab at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria, where she focuses on identifying new essential regulators during the germline-to-embryo transition. She will talk about “Small proteins with big roles – from coordinating cell migration to mediating species-specific fertilization”

Toxicology, Epigenetics, and Environmental Health -understanding the effects of environmental contaminants

Increasing societal dependence on manmade chemicals and lack of knowledge about their potential adverse effects is a major threat to sustainable development, wildlife and human health. Evidence show that environmental factors such as exposure to the over 100,000 chemicals that contaminate our environment are the main risk factor for many chronic diseases. Understanding what environmental contaminants we are exposed to, their chemical properties and the interactions with biological systems are therefore essential for the safe use of existing and emerging compounds.
