23.10.18, New RNA Alumna: Madalena Reimao Pinto, PhD!

Congratulations to Madalena Reimao Pinto (Ameres Lab, IMBA) for successfully defending today her PhD thesis “Molecular basis and biological functions of RNA 3′ end uridylation in Drosophila melanogaster“!

Madalena shows an impressive publication record produced during her PhD studies; it would be a shame not to list it here on this occasion:
