Panagiotis Moschou

Slide3

Panagiotis Moschou obtained a Master degree and Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Physiology and Biotechnology at the University of Crete (Greece) in Prof. Roubelakis-Angelakis lab. His work focused on the roles of polyamine oxidases in plant development, stress, and cell fate. He did a postdoc in the lab of Prof. Peter Bozhkov at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala (Sweden), where he studied mechanisms by which plant cell polarity and fate are coupled by proteolysis. In 2016 he spent a year in the lab of Prof. Jonathan Jones (The Sainsbury Lab, UK) as a visiting researcher focusing on the development of new methods for studying proteolysis. At the same time, he started his lab in the Department of Plant Biology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences as an Associate Professor.

Chen Liu obtained a Master degree in Botany at the SUN YAT-SEN UNIVERSITY (China) in Prof. Shangzhi Huang lab and got a Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Physiology at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (Germany) in Dr. Anton Schäffner lab. Her Ph.D. work focused on how the Aquaporin protein level was affected within the same gene family in Arabidopsis. In 2017, She started her postdoc at the Department of Plant Biology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Chen is studying the role of proteolysis in cell polarity and fate decisions.

RNA project

Boyu Liu

boyu-liu-face.jpgBoyu Liu obtained his Master degree and Ph.D. in Botany at Hunan Agricultural University (China) in Prof. Ying Ruan’s lab. His work focused on histone modification in plant development, flowering time control, and organ size control. He worked in Wen-hui Shen’s lab (IBMP-CNRS, Strasbourg, France) for five months in 2012, where he studied how plant development is regulated by histone modification. He got his Ph.D. degree in 2016 and now he is working at Hunan Agricultural University as a Lecturer. In Moschou’s lab, he will study how the complex Scc2-Scc4 regulates the loading of the protein cohesin on chromatin.
