MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Cambridge, UK

Ketan J. Patel, from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, aims to understand the molecular basis of chromosome stability in human cells. By utilising a variety of complementary approaches, he is characterizing and probing the function of some of essential genes that result in chromosome breakage in order to better understand the pathways that maintain genetic integrity.

He has been invited by Jose Yélamos (IMIM).
