Gil Carraco, CBMR researcher, won a Fulbright Grant for research with the PhD project “Regulating the pace of the Embryo Clock: RNA molecules in temporal control of vertebrate development”.
The main goal of the project is to perform direct mutagenesis using CRISP-Cas technology in zebrafish. The researcher seeks, during the nine-month research period at Harvard University, refine the embryonic clock model intra and inter-species.
The Portuguese researcher will work directly with Professor Alexander Schier, at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (Harvard University).
