Daniela Palacios, holder of a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the University Autonoma of Madrid, Spain, works as a Researcher at Dulbecco Telethon Institute/Fondazione Santa Lucia, Rome, Italy. She is an expert in the biochemistry of signal transduction and gene regulation in adult stem cells, with particular interest in muscle regeneration. Her results, published in several peer-reviewed journals, including Molecular Cell and Cell Stem Cell, have significantly contributed to the description of the epigenetic network that control muscle regeneration. Her research is currently focused on the study of the molecular mechanisms by which environmental cues regulate the epigenetic landscape and nuclear organization of adult stem cells and their transformed counterpart, by integrating genome wide high-throughput data with molecular biology techniques.
