Claudia Ribeiro de Almeida

Claudia Ribeiro de Almeida originates from Portugal. She studied Molecular Biology & Genetics at the University of Lisbon before moving to Erasmus MC, Rotterdam to gain a PhD with Dr Rudi Hendriks examining the role of the gene regulating protein CTCF in the development of lymphocyte immune cells. As a Postdoctoral Researcher, she initially moved to MRC-Clinical Sciences Centre (now MRC-LIMS) before joining the Proudfoot lab as an EMBO fellow. Claudia has a long-standing interest in the study of the molecular mechanisms regulating immunoglobulin gene rearrangements, a field to which she has contributed 13 publications with over 400 citations.
