Equality4Success - "My Life In Science Seminar"

 

Michaela Frye completed her PhD in Frankfurt/Main in 2000 studying the role of epithelial defensins in cystic fibrosis. In 2001 she joined the lab of Fiona Watt as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the CR-UK London Research Institute. Michaela received a CR-UK Career Development Fellowship in 2007 when she started as a group leader at the CSCR.

Research:

Our lab focuses on the identification and characterization of post-transcriptional modifications that regulate the maintenance of adult stem cells. We further explore whether modulation of RNA-methylation pathways can help to protect from human diseases such as cancer.

Our current research themes are:

1. The dynamic deposition of 5-methylcytosine (m5C) into RNA

2. The functional roles of m5C in RNA metabolism

3. The importance of m5C methylases in development and diseases
