Maria Chatzifrangkeskou

Post-Doctoral Fellow

Dr. Maria Chatzifrangkeskou completed her PhD at Sorbonne University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris and Freie University in Berlin. Her work focused on the role of nuclear envelope in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton in muscular dystrophy and cardiomyopathy. During 2017-2020 she was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Oxford, where she studied the involvement of a tumour suppressor protein in the regulation of nuclear actin. Maria joined the lab in April 2020 and her research interests include the investigation of new regulators of nuclear mechanotransduction.
