I obtained a BSc in Biology from the University of Salamanca in 2016 and a MSc in Biomolecules and Cell Dynamics from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) in 2017. As an undergraduate, I worked at Arantxa Tabernero’s group studying the internalization of cell-penetrating peptides by brain cells. I then moved to Pasteur Institute in Paris with an AMGEN Scholars fellowship, where I studied the biology of HTLV-1 viruses at Philippe Afonso’s group. I developed my MSc Thesis at the National Center for Biotechnology (CNB/CSIC) in Madrid, under the direction of Isabel Mérida, studying the lipid signaling of T cells.
In 2017 I came back to the INCYL and I am currently a PhD candidate and FPU fellow. My project aims to better understand the participation of the tumor microenvironment on glioma progression and response to treatment using mouse models.
