Dr. Regha Kakkad – Research Associate
Regha did her Ph.D. from the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, India. After this, she did postdoctoral research in the lab of Prof. Denise Barlow at the Center for Molecular Medicine, Vienna, where she worked on epigenetic modifications associated with imprinted genes. She then joined the lab of Prof. Constanze Bonifer at the University of Birmingham, UK, and studied the effect of expression of leukaemia-associated oncoproteins in early hematopoiesis. This lead to an interest in the regulation of cell adhesion and migration and she joined Zaidel-Bar lab to pursue it further.
