I’m Alejandro Montenegro-Montero, a molecular biologist working on gene expression regulation in eukaryotes. My research is focused on transcriptional regulation, specifically, on the characterization of transcriptional regulatory networks in eukaryotes. I’m currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Program in Systems Biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in the Walhout Lab.
At present, I’m studying gene regulatory networks using the nematode C. elegans as a model system. In my graduate work, I used the filamentous fungi N. crassa and my work was focused on stress responses and also, on how the circadian clock controls rhythms in gene expression.
