Clara Novo

Clara obtained her Ph.D. in 2010 under the supervision of Nicola Royle (University of Leicester). The focus of her thesis was on the mechanisms that underlie MS32 minisatellite instability in telomeres. Clara was awarded Fellowships to study the replication and organisation of telomeres with Arturo Londoño-Vallejo (Institute Curie, Paris) followed by the investigation of epigenetic alterations of telomeres in cancer with Vincent Castronovo and Denis Mottet (Institute GIGA, Liege). Funded by the EpiGeneSys Network (www.epigenesys.eu), Clara joined the Babraham Institute in 2013 to study the three-dimensional organisation of the genome in stem cells and reprogramming.
