Inês Lages graduated in Applied Biology in 2017 and completed her master’s degree in Health Sciences in 2019 by the University of Minho, Portugal. During her master's thesis work in the Life and Health Sciences Research Institute (ICVS) in the oncological field. Currently, Inês is studying the interactions of TRIM proteins with specific E2 and DUBs enzymes under the supervision of Germana Meroni and she is a Ph.D. student of Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Trieste, Italy.
The aim of her project is to define the TRIM mechanisms of action to ultimately identify screening and targeting strategies. For that, she will test functional interactions of TRIM proteins and E2 enzymes to understand E3-E2 pair selection. In parallel, she intends to identify the DUBs implicated in the TRIM-associated disease pathways under study within the consortium.
