***Natasha Jansz


Natasha joined the Genome Plasticity and Disease group in January 2021 to study the mechanisms governing expression from proviral DNA. Natasha has a background in molecular epigenetics. She was awarded her PhD in the lab of Professor Marnie Blewitt, at WEHI in Melbourne, Australia in 2018. There, she characterised the structural maintenance of chromosomes protein, Smchd1, in mammalian development. Natasha was awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship, HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowship, and an EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowship (non-stipendiary) to train at the Institute of Epigenetics and Stem Cells in Munich, Germany, where she studied transposable element function in preimplantation development. Natasha has joined the team of Professor Geoffrey Faulkner, supported by an NHMRC Investigator Grant, to investigate mechanisms underlying endogenous and exogenous retrovirus regulation in infectious and malignant disease.
