Gabriel Krasovec

Gabriel is a post-doc funded by the Irish Research Council. He joined the Frank lab in 2020. Gab obtained his PhD in 2018 at the Sorbonne University (France) by working on the functions of apoptotic cell death during the metamorphosis of the tunicate Ciona intestinalis and the cnidarian Clytia hemisphaerica. Then, he obtained a short-post doc fellowship from the Japan Society for Promotion of Science to work in the Sasakura lab at the Shimoda Marine Research Center (Tsukuba University, Japan) on tail regression regulation, which is a major step in Ciona intestinalis metamorphosis. Now, Gabriel is mainly interested in the development of the cnidarian Hydractinia symbiologicarpus and explores, first, the apoptotic function during the larva metamorphosis, and second, the first steps of development during cell aggregates regeneration. Outside the laboratory, he watches documentaries, reads and discusses the fascinating themes of history and geopolitics.
