Marina Martínez-Bartolomé, Ph.D
My research interests are developmental evolution, regeneration, gene regulation and cell type evolution. During my Ph.D. at Range lab at Auburn University, I studied the molecular mechanisms and gene regulatory networks during early patterning of the sea urchin embryo.
I recently started my postdoctoral research position at Röttinger lab at the Institute for Research on Cancer and Aging in Nice (IRCAN) where I am interested in unlocking the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying whole-body regeneration in the cnidarian sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. In particular, my current research focuses on the apoptosis-dependent mechanisms during the tissue crosstalk required to induce a regenerative response.
