Molecular Mechanisms of RNA Dependent DNA Damage Response
29 September 2022
- University Campus Bohunice (pavilion B11/ seminar room 132)
Dr. Monika Gullerova
Associate Professor in Experimental Pathology
"Dr Monika Gullerova studied molecular biology at Comenius University in Bratislava, where she developed her passion for molecular biology and experimental oncology. After graduation, she moved to Vienna to conduct her PhD and to extend research interests in the basic science of transcriptional regulation.
In 2006 Monika joined Professor Nicholas Proudfoot’s laboratory in Oxford as Postdoctoral Fellow investigating functions of Cohesin and RNA interference pathways. During her postdoctoral studies she was awarded the L’Oreal/UNESCO Women in Science UK award and joined Exeter College as Staines Medical Research Fellow. Concurrently Monika conducted studies at Harvard Medical School and Kyoto University.
In 2013 Monika established her own laboratory in the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology in Oxford, funded by MRC’s Career Development Award. Her research group investigates DNA damage response, in particular how RNA mediates rapid and efficient DNA damage repair. She was awarded the Hugh Price Fellowship at Jesus College in 2015. More recently, Monika was awarded a prestigious Senior Research Fellowship by Cancer Research UK to fund her research on genome stability and its relevance to cancer."
