About the article
Nancy Standart, an American born in Prague, undertook her undergraduate and graduate studies in the UK, and did post-doctoral work with Klaus Scherrer in Paris, Joan Ruderman in Cambridge, USA and Tim Hunt in Cambridge, UK. Her early research interests focused on control of translation (and mRNA localization) in early development by specific RNA-binding proteins, first in marine invertebrates and then in Xenopus. Currently, the lab studies the role of P-body components in gene expression regulation.
Aline Marnef is from Belgium and did her undergraduate studies in Applied Genetics at U.W.E. in Bristol. During her studies she gained experiences in bacterial genetics, developmental biology, proteomics and mRNP complexes. AM did her PhD degree in Nancy Standart’s lab in the Biochemistry Department at the University of Cambridge, where she investigated the roles of Pat1 proteins and P-bodies in the control of gene expression, in particular at the post-transcriptional level. In 2012, she joined Dr Tamas Kiss’ group in Toulouse (France) and now works on nuclear non-coding RNAs.
