On September 1, Doris Popovic joined our lab as a postdoctoral fellow. Doris did her PhD in the laboratory of Ivan Dikic at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. In her PhD work, she discovered a mechanism by which endocytic carriers are targeted to autophagosomes during autophagy. For more details, check here.

In our lab, Doris will use a combination of systems biology and molecular cell biology approaches to study the poorly understood process of subcellular patterning of RNA molecules.
