Research

Lucia received her master's degree in molecular biology in 2006 at the University of Vienna, Austria. She then did her PhD on RNA localisation in neurons, investigating the role of two proteins involved in this process: Staufen2 and Pumilio2. After receiving her PhD at the University of Vienna in 2010, she moved to the University of Otago. Here, she first worked with Professor Warren Tate on a project studying secreted amyloid precursor protein alpha and its role in Alzheimer's disease and has now joined Professor Cliff Abraham and Dr Stephanie Hughes in a study investigating adult neurogenesis. She is interested in the processes necessary for memory formation and retrieval.
