In our lab we are interested in understanding the regulation of growth, tissue and metabolic homeostasis in vivo using mainly Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism.

Andres Dekanty obtained his PhD in 2008 from the Instituto Leloir/Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA, Argentina). In 2008, he joined the laboratory of Marco Milan as a postdoc at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona, Spain). Since 2014, he is a member of CONICET and Professor at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL, Argentina).

I received my Bachelor's degree in Biotechology from Universidad Nacional del Litoral, in Argentina. After some years of following a carrer in business I came back to science. At Dekanty Lab, I am interested on the role of p53 in metabolism, particularly in response to nutrient stress.
I obtained my degree in Biotechnology from Universidad Nacional del Litoral. As a PhD student in Dekanty's Lab, I use the Drosophila wing as a model to study coordinated tissue gowth.

I am studying the role of the conserved transcription factor Myc in regulating the biogenesis of miRNAs and the levels of p53 in Drosophila.
I am pursuing a degree in Biotechnology at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral, in Argentina. In the lab I am starting a new project related to aging and also do technical support.
