Nadezda Fursova received her DPhil in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford. Her graduate work under the supervision of Prof Robert Klose focused on the mechanisms of chromatin-based gene regulation by the Polycomb repressive system. As a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the NCI/NIH, she is a recipient of the fellowship from the Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Fund for Medical Research. Her postdoctoral research in the group of Dr Daniel Larson aims to characterize enhancer transcription dynamics in order to elucidate its role in gene activation using single-molecule biochemical and live-cell imaging approaches. Outside of the lab, Nadya enjoys Latin American dancing, going to art galleries and exploring new cuisines.
