Diégo received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Utah (USA) in 2013 before joining Princeton University’s Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute as a research assistant. Thereafter, he moved to Cambridge (USA) to join the Rubin lab at Harvard University’s Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, where he worked as a research fellow before enrolling as a PhD student at Pasteur in 2016. In the Zurzolo lab, he employs live-cell imaging, correlative electron microscopy, and connectomics to study the ultra structure of tunneling nanotubes in vitro and in vivo.

Unraveling the structure/function of TNTs in vitro and in vivo.
Chiara Zurzolo (PI)
Unraveling the structure/function of TNTs in vitro and in vivo. While TNTs may be involved in cell-to-cell communication in many physiological processes as well as diseases, their physiological relevance is unclear as their existence […]
