Maria Vera Ugalde, PhD: Principal Investigator.
Maria obtained her PhD from the University of Navarra, Spain. She moved to New York City for her postdoctoral training with Evgeny Nudler at NYU Medical Center, where she became interested in the regulation of the stress response. Then, she moved to the laboratory of Robert Singer in Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where she developed single-cell and single-molecule fluorescence microscopy approaches to resolve the stress response.
Sonya Madan: I am a biochemistry undergraduate student entering my third year and very grateful to have been offered my first research position. Though I have a hypothesis about what I want to do in the future, I am excited and open to experimenting in different fields and projects before drawing any conclusions.
