Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute


Throughout my scientific career I have focused my studies on mechanisms of transcriptional gene regulation. During my PhD in the Hospital La Fe (Valencia, Spain) I was involved in several projects aiming to develop hepatic differentiated human cell models, and I was acknowledged with a Special Recognition PhD Award by the University of Valencia in 2007. After my PhD (2006), I moved abroad funded by a Marie Curie Program (ITN) and returned to Spain (2010) with a FEBS long-term fellowship. After a career break of two year working in a small biotech, I was granted with the first inaugural Sanger Institute Fellowship (Janet Thornton Fellowship, 2015) returning to research at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. At present, I am working at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute in which my host laboratory is located. My research projects are focused in single-cell genomics, using different technological platforms and tackling different biological questions from the single-cell perspective across divergent species.
