Camila Vazquez Echegaray, PhD

Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow

Elucidating the Mechanisms of Cellular Identity by Direct Cell Reprogramming


Feeling always highly passionate about cell reprogramming, Camila pursued her PhD degree at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), exploring several aspects of gene regulation in pluripotent stem cells. Particularly, she focused on studying the organizational dynamic of pluripotent transcription factors on the onset of differentiation and cell reprogramming. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Pereira Lab she aims to elucidate basic principles of cellular identity utilizing direct cellular reprogramming strategies.

When not doing science, Camila likes to spend time with her family, exercise, and work on some fun art project.
