Paulina is a postbaccalaureate fellow in the Laboratory of Receptor of Biology and Gene Expression branch at NCI. She graduated with a B.S. in Biotechnology from James Madison University in 2020. She joined Shalini Oberdoerffer’s lab in June 2020. In her first year at NIH, she worked mostly under Daniel Arango (a previous post-doc in the Oberdoerffer lab) and investigated the role of the RNA modification N4-acetylcytidine (ac4C) in gene expression and cancer. Currently, she is interested in how enzymes recognize and remove/add RNA modifications, as well as the implications that this might have in evolution and immunity.
