Antonio Giraldez, from the Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, USA, investigates how gene regulation shapes vertebrate embryonic development using zebra fish as a model system. He is primarily focused on understanding the mechanisms that activate the genome soon after fertilization and how this universal transition drives post-transcriptional regulation of the maternal instructions to allow one of the central developmental transitions to occur. He has been invited by Manuel Irimia (CRG).
