Research groups

Lara Cravo

Postgraduate Student

I am a DPhil student at St John's College, University of Oxford and I form part of Professor Matthew Wood's Research Group here in DPAG. 

I completed my degree in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, and Università degli studi di Genova, Italy. As part of my Masters degree in Molecular Biotechnology, at Professor Xin Lu's lab, University of Oxford, I worked on cancer biology, in particular p53 tumour suppressor.

My current research is on RNA secondary structures, RNA processing and transcription mechanisms in RNA Pol II transcribed human genes. I am also highly interested in the biology of nucleic acid therapies to target the messenger RNA in mutated genes in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
