Institute welcomes new Ph.D. student Shela Algodon

Shela Algodon graduated with a master’s degree from the University of the Philippines. Her previous work involved single nucleotide polymorphisms in the tumor suppressor long noncoding RNA MEG3 and their possible contributions in the susceptibility of an individual to colorectal cancer. She is currently undertaking a doctoral program at the University of Lubeck and studying X-linked dystonia parkinsonism, a disease which mainly affects males of Filipino descent.
