Patrycja Plewka

My research interests focus on sdRNAs and novel functions of U7 snRNA.
In my spare time I enjoy reading crime novels and going to my zumba classes

Marlena Cichocka

The analysis of interactions between hnRNP UL1, FUS and U7 snRNP in human cells Hek 293T and HeLa.
My hobbies: Travelling, including exploring new cultures and food; anthropology; psychological literature and fashion

Ankur Gadgil

My work is focused on studying the effect of ALS-linked FUS mutations on U7snRNP activity.
Besides, I am equally interested in bird watching, trekking, travel and fooooooood 😉

Project Description: The main goal of the project is to identify the sdRNAs – small RNAs derived from mature snoRNAs and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying their synthesis, mediated by the Fused In Sarcoma (FUS) protein.
