Eric Cornes Maragliano, Ph.D.



I obtained my B.Sc. degree in Biology at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona (2010). After that, I enrolled at the Ph.D. program in Biomedicine from the UPF and started working at the Dr. Julián Cerón lab (IDIBELL, Barcelona) where I obtained my Ph.D. (2015). Under the co-supervision of Dr. Ceron and Dr. Dupuy (IECB, Bordeaux) I studied the functions of conserved RNA metabolism factors using C. elegans as a model system. By applying a combination of genetic and functional approaches we found that a subset of RNA metabolism factors that are conserved from bacteria to humans are required for the correct development and adaptation of multicellular organisms to environmental stresses through the insulin/IGF-like pathway. I am interested in the regulatory potential of RNAs and more precisely on studying the biological relevance of RNA-based epigenetic mechanisms on the development of multicellular organisms. For that reason I joined the Cecere laboratory in the Department of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology at the Institut Pasteur.
