Noemi Jiménez-Rojo

Postdoc, University of Geneva

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Biochemistry Department of the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and my work focuses on understanding lipid diversity and uncovering new lipid functions using multidisciplinary approaches (membrane biophysics, lipidomics, cell biology). I have also co-founded and chaired the Postdoc Association of UNIGE to work towards strengthening the links between postdoctoral fellows and creating a more collaborative and safe work environment. Advocate for equity in science.

Roberto Contestabile

Associate Professor of Biochemistry, Sapienza University of Rome

My research activity has mainly concerned pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzymes and vitamin B6 metabolism in bacteria and humans. Concerning PLP-dependent enzymes, I have dealt with their catalytic mechanism, catalytic promiscuity and evolution of catalytic activities, the design and experimentation of specific inhibitors, the mechanism of addition of PLP to apoenzymes and the folding mechanism. At the moment, I am mainly focused on the regulation of PLP biosynthesis and salvage pathways in bacteria and humans. In particular, I am interested in enzyme regulation mechanisms and transcriptional regulation, in the mechanism of PLP transfer to apoenzymes and in neurological disorders related to PLP metabolism. I teach Biochemistry, Biochemical Methods and Enzymology in Biological Sciences, Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology courses at Sapienza University.

Our lab is interested in understanding the basic molecular rules by which a cell defines and maintains its identity and function. Our main focus is on understanding the molecular basis of programming and reprogramming of cell-fate decisions during embryogenesis, homeostasis, and aging. Additionally, we focus on devising molecular strategies to ‘hack’ these genetic networks that program cell-fates to induce regenerative responses upon injury.
