Title: Mechanistic insight into the mRNA 3’-end processing
BIOGRAPHY: Lori A Passmore is a Group Leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. She uses an integrated approach combining structural, biochemical and functional studies, aiming to reconstitute multi-protein complexes and their activities, and to determine their high-resolution structures to understand their mechanisms. She works on protein complexes that add and remove poly(A) tails from mRNAs (CPF/CPSF, Ccr4-Not, Pan2-Pan3) and complexes involved in repair of DNA crosslinks (the Fanconi anaemia pathway). She was elected a member of EMBO in 2018 and received the RNA Society’s Inaugural Elisa Izaurralde Award in 2020.
