Dr. Helena Jambor (mentee of the DFG-research unit) has recently been accepted as fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies (Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin), were she researches the history of life science visualization.
She is particularly fascinated by the changing representation of RNA: from drawings of crystalline material by Friedrich Miescher to current life imaging techniques that show RNA is a living material!
Helena previously was a postdoc in the lab of Pavel Tomancak (associated with this DFG-Research Unit, Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden) working on high-throughput approaches to understanding RNA localisation in Drosophila (Jambor et al. eLife, 2015).
She recently published on ROMi, a method to obtain egg-chambers in large scale (Jambor et al. 2016), a fly resource to analyse protein distributions in living fly tissues (Sarov et al., eLIFE, 2016) and an investigation of Rab protein organization (Dunst et al., Dev Cell, 2015).
