Alfredo Castello

Leader of Castello Lab- RNA binding proteins in virus infection

A Group Leader at the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research. Dr. Castello studied at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain and started his research career in the lab of Dr. Luis Carrasco, investigating how RNA and DNA viruses interplay with the host translational machinery. From that point on, his fascination with viruses grew, and then it expanded during his postdoctoral studies at Dr. Matthias Hentze’s lab, where he contributed to identifying the universe of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs).
