Josep Vilarrasa-Blasi wins EMBO long-term fellowship!

Josep was awarded a long-term fellowship from EMBO to work on osmotic stress signaling mechanisms in the Dinneny lab.  Josep comes to us from the Ana Caño-Delgado lab in Spain where he worked on Brassinosteroid signaling in roots.  His study, published in Developmental Cell (Vilarrasa-Blasi et al., 2014), identified the BRAVO gene as an important regulator of stem-cell division downstream of steroid signaling.  In the Dinneny lab he will work to determine the osmo-sensory pathway and develop novel imaging tools to monitor physical changes in cells during osmo-stimulation.
