Suzana Hadjur

Research Department of Cancer Biology, Cancer Institute, University College London. London, UK

Hadjur is group leader at the University College London Cancer Institute and a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow. She studies the spatial and temporal control of gene expression because it is essential for the development of complex multicellular organisms. Inappropriate gene activity leads to developmental abnormalities and cancer. Her research is focused on understanding the fundamental mechanisms controlling gene expression in mammalian cells. She was invited by Guillaume Filion from the CRG.
