Subsequently, she moved to Cologne, Germany to do her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Alvaro Rada Iglesias working on the functional characterization of poised enhancers and stayed there six months as a postdoc with a Köln Fortune Grant. Upon joining our lab in 2018, Sara started working with iPSCs lines from human and non human primates to develop an in vitro system to study regulatory elements using an EVO-DEVO approach.
