DNA repair, Stem Cell Biology, Cancer Research, and Molecular Biology Editor
Dr. Roopsha’s research interests are diverse. During her Ph.D., at the Institute of Molecular Pathology, Vienna she was involved in the discovery of the histone modifying Suv4-20h enzymes and delineated their role in DNA damage and immunoglobulin class switch recombination in mice. Alongside, she worked on p53 repression through methylation. During her postdoctoral fellowship, at the Gladstone Institutes, UCSF, she found that the chromatin remodeling BAP complex regulates cardiac function in Drosophila. In the Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge, UK, she studied epigenetic reprogramming, nuclear architecture and an unexpected role for NANOG in germ cell regulation. This research has led to several co-author publications in Nature and Science, amongst others. Her technical expertise spans OMX super-resolution microscopy to creating CRISPR mutant Embryonic Stem Cells. Dr. Roopsha has experience and in-depth knowledge in various areas of research: including DNA repair, Stem Cell Biology, Cancer Research, Cardiovascular development and disease, Mammalian Development – with an Epigenetics angle, a field at the forefront of translational and clinical research.
In addition to serving as a molecular biology editor for research articles, Dr. Roopsha has worked on review articles, presentations and posters extensively. She has peer-reviewed several manuscripts. Dr. Roopsha loves the challenge of communicating science effectively and has written and edited numerous manuscripts and research grants during the past 12 years of her research career. She has also worked as an Editor for an online science magazine, aimed at explaining complex scientific ideas to a general audience.
On a personal note, Dr. Roopsha enjoys painting and singing and has performed with the Vienna University Choir in various European cities.
