About Ana Pombo
Ana Pombo started her group at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre in London in 2000, working on gene expression and genome architecture. In 2007, she was awarded the Robert Feulgen Prize for her contributions to imaging nuclear architecture. Her laboratory moved to Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology at MDC, Berlin, in 2013. She is also Professor of Biology at Humboldt University. Her laboratory is interested in understanding mechanisms of gene priming and activation in ES and differentiated cells, and how the three-dimensional folding of chromatin in uences gene expression in development and disease.
