Project summary

After receiving her PhD from Cornell University, New York, Alexandra continued her work on the role of PRDM4 in neural development during her postdoctoral training at the Neurological Clinic, University of Würzburg, Germany. Following a move to London with her family, she had a career break and then received a Career Re-entry Fellowship in 2005 to continue her research at UCL. Alexandra's work focused on the elucidation of the mechanisms which control neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
