Postdoctoral fellow+31 20 512 7893 email@example.com Bas van Steensel
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 received AIRC iCARE2.0 fellowship and a MSCA Individual fellowship to study how topoisomerases and torsional stress regulate genome organization.
