After graduating in Biology at Murcia’s University, I did my PhD at CNIO under the supervision of Dr. María Blasco, where I focused on understanding telomeres biology in aging and cancer. Afterward, I moved to Cancer Research UK to do my first post-doc in Dr. Simon Boulton’s Laboratory where I started to study liver cancer and its relation with DNA-damage. I did a second post-doctoral stay at CNIC, in Dr. Guadalupe Sabio’s laboratory, where I continued studying liver cancer. Recently, I moved back to Murcia to run my laboratory being my main focus the study of chronodisruption in cancer biology.
During this time I was granted by EMBO, Maire-Curie, Juan de la Cierva, JIN-MINECO and recently with Ramón y Cajal. I also published several papers such as in Cell and Nature. Lately, I was granted by FERO and Leonardo-BBVA grants.
Currently I am running my own lab at IMIB-UMU-Arrixaca (Murcia) with the main goal to understand the connection between crondisruption and cancer.
