Biochemistry degree (graduated in 2000) and European PhD in 2006 (University of Murcia) working on the characterization of the matrix that surrounds the egg and embryo. During her postdoc, Maria worked with Dr. Jurrien Dean at National Institute of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA (2006-2010) where she applied molecular techniques to study gametes recognition. She has contributed with numerous scientific manuscripts, chapters’ books and international conferences. Maria has developed research projects as IP focused in the fertilization event, describing both the molecules responsible for the recognition of gametes, as the oviduct proteins involved in the process of fertilization and embryonic development. His research during the last years consists in applying molecular biology techniques based on the use of micro and nanospheres in the development of new techniques applied to reproduction.
