Stefano Manzo

Postdoctoral fellow


I am a molecular Biologist with strong interest in transcription and DNA topology. I received my PhD at University of Bologna in Capranico Lab studying the transcriptional role of Topoisomerase 1. In Chedin Lab I (UC Davis, California) I had the possibility to study how Topoisomerase 1 modulates non-canonical DNA structures such as R loops  at  a genome-wide level. I received a post-doctoral FIRC fellowship (Italian Foundation for Cancer Resaerch) at University of Bologna for the project "Role of R loop structures on Top1cc-driven genomic instability". In the van Steensel lab I will study how topoisomerases and torsional stress regulate genome organization.
