You are cordially welcomed to the guest seminar by professor D. Stephen Charnock-Jones (Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK) “Bacteria and viruses in the placenta”.
Steve Charnock-Jones is Professor of Reproductive Biology in the University of Cambridge. After undergraduate studies in microbiology, he received training in molecular biology during his PhD and post-doctoral studies at the Babraham Institute and MRC Molecular Genetics Unit in Cambridge. His current research is focused on endometrial and placental biology, with a special interest on the placental endothelial cells and stress response. As one of the key authors, he has recently published several high-impact ‘omics’ studies of the human placenta (Nature 2019, 2021, Nat Med 2020 and Nat Commun 2021).
Professor D. Stephen Charnock-Jones is the oponent of Triin Kikas, who will defend her PhD on 24 August, at 12:00 in Biomedicum (Ravila 19, room 1006) titled “Single nucleotide variants affecting placental gene expression and pregnancy outcome”.
Participation in the PhD defence is possible only in the auditorium.
