Personal profile


Cristina works at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University as a Research Fellow.


My current research program focuses on transcriptional regulation of myeloid development and disease.

We use zebrafish and mouse models to discover and understand molecular pathways in haematopoietic development. Within this context, we look at the role of transcription factors and mRNA splicing regulators, employing a multi-disciplinary approach integrating molecular genetics, biochemistry, genomics, and proteomics.
