Where Ideas grow
VĂ­tor Yang
PhD student

I am a Scientific PhD Student with strong entrepreneurship and management experience. My areas of preferred research are RhoGTPase-mediated regulation of cell architecture and cell motility, as well as its impact on physiological processes such as embryogenesis and wound healing. I use the Drosophila melanogaster egg chamber as the model of study, since during its development, a small group of migratory cells (known as border cells) start their journey from the anterior to the posterior pole of the egg, in a similar fashion as to how invading cancer cells behave. My research group aims to unveil molecular mechanisms that can be translated into mechanisms of human disease. Apart from scientific skills, my soft skills are Computer Troubleshooting, Data Analysis, Process Optimization.
