Marcela is returning to molecular microbiology after a career break of 10 years. Prior to her break, Marcela trained as a molecular biologist and applied her skills working on nitrogen fixing microorganisms and in olfactory neurones in research positions in France and Brazil.
Her Fellowship is sponsored by Queen Mary University of London.
Marcela’s research project will investigate the molecular interactions between plants and pests and is titled: Functional genomics to study a novel iron regulator in photosynthetic organisms. She is due to complete her Fellowship in 2021.
