  • Profile

    Diana Pereira Fernandes is a PhD candidate in the Evolutionary Neurogenomics group led by Dr. Frank Jacobs. She explores novel gene-regulatory mechanisms in the development and healthy maintenance of the human brain and their misregulation in neurodegenerative diseases. To do so, she specializes in primate comparative genomics and she grows stem-cell derived mini-brains (cortical organoids) in the lab to study the function of the identified novel gene-regulatory properties.
