Myriam HembergerMyriam Hemberger studied at the University of Freiburg and Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Berlin, Germany, (PhD) and trained as postdoctoral fellow (with funding from the Ernst Schering Research foundation and a long-term HFSP postdoctoral fellowship) at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute in Toronto and at the University of Calgary, Canada.
Since 2004 she has been group leader at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK, first as MRC Career Development Fellow and since 2009 on a tenured position as part of Babraham’s Epigenetics Programme. In 2007 she was awarded the IFPA Award in Placentology for her contributions to the field.
Her research interests are on molecular mechanisms of the genetic – epigenetic crosstalk that ensures formation of a functional placenta. Current project areas include the intersection between transcriptional networks and the epigenome that ensure the stem cell state of TS cells in the mouse and human placenta, and effect of physiological and environmental influences on the trophoblast’s epigenome and consequent differentiation deficits.
Myriam is now based at the University of Calgary
