Dr. Belinda Pinto

Congratulations are due to our newest PhD, Belinda Pinto. Belinda defended her degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology with Professor Pamela Geyer on Understanding the Role of LEM Proteins in Drosophila Development. Belinda’s work identified phenotypes reminiscent of human laminopathies, suggesting that studies in Drosophila will provide insights into lamina dysfunction associated with disease.
