Two new Senior Research Fellows join NUS group

Lilian Kisiswa obtained a PhD in 2011 in Visual Neursocience at Cardiff University, UK, under the direction of Prof. James E Morgan. Her PhD thesis was entitled “The role of inhibitor of apoptosis (IAPs) in retinal ganglion cell death and dendrite remodelling“. She then did postdoctoral studies at the Department of Molecular Biosciences, School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, under the direction of Prof. Alun M Davies. Lilian joined our Stockholm team at Karolinska Institue in August 2013 to investigate the interplay between RIP2 and TRAF6 in p75NTR signaling. Her work led to a publication in Cell Reports. She now joins our NUS team to continue work on p75NTR and RhoA signaling.

Marta Garcia-Miralles obtained her PhD in 2013 at the Department of Neurodegenerative Diseases, Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, University of Tuebingen, Germany, under the direction of Prof. Thomas Gasser, and with the characterisation of a novel LRRK2 mouse model of Parkinson’s disease. She then worked as a postdoc fellow at the Translational Laboratory in Genetic Medicine (TLGM), A*STAR, Singapore, under the direction of Dr. Mahmoud Pouladi. She is joining our NUS team to contribute to our efforts to understand the roles of neurotrophin signaling in cerebrovascular disease.
