Development and Evolutionary Morphogenesis - DEM

Andreia Marcelino Nunes

PhD Student

Andreia Marcelino Nunes is conducting a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology by the University of Lisbon starting in 2013 within the Development and Evolutionary Morphogenesis of cE3c. She is working on the project “Changing laminin niches in skeletal muscle: dissecting their role in development and disease” under the supervision of Prof.  Sólveig Thorsteinsdóttir and Dr. Marianne Deries and in close collaboration with Prof. Dean J. Burkin at the University of Nevada, USA. In this Ph.D. project we aim to better understand  the role of the extracellular matrix in myogenesis and study how defects in myofibre-extracellular matrix binding develops into muscular dystrophies.
