EMBO Long-Term Research Fellowship awarded to Dagan Segal

Dagan Segal has become an EMBO Long-Term Research Fellow starting January 2019. The EMBO fellowship is a prestigious European 2-year fellowship, with a strong emphasis on international exchange.

Dagan’s work focuses on development of zebrafish and in vitro models to study interactions of cells with their complex surroundings. Joining UT Southwestern in February 2018, Dagan is a joint postdoctoral fellow with the Amatruda and Danuser labs and is combining imaging, genomics, molecular biology, and analytical tools to gain mechanistic understanding of the responses of cells to their environment, particularly in pediatric cancer.
