Anna Simonini, BSc

Anna Simonini joined the team in February 2020 when she worked on a project study to investigate the untranslated 5' DNA region upstream of the human FAHD1 promoter region on chromosome 16. She studied transcription factors in this region and performed pilot studies on how this region may be regulated under normoxic and hypoxic conditions in U2OS cells. She will continue these experiments in the course of her masters thesis starting August 2020 and also study the overexpression of human FAHD1 on the background of endogeneous FAHD1 depleted cancer cells.
