Where Ideas Grow
Augusta Monteiro
Lab Manager
I hold a degree in Engenharia Biotecnologica and a Medicine and Molecular Oncology Master degree. I am currently developing my work in Molecular Genetics Group at the Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology (IBMC), where I perform all services of maintenance of drosophila collections, maintenance of solutions stocks for the laboratory, maintenance of consumables stocks as well as preparing the fly food. I?m currently implementing a protocol of transplantation of imaginal discs, intestine, into D. melanogaster adult flies.
