Involvements in SRUK

I am a biomedical researcher with more than 10 years of experience. I graduated in Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Salamanca and did a Masters in Molecular Biomedicine at the Universidad Autonoma of Madrid. I completed a PhD programme at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) in the Molecular Cytogenetics Group, developing different research projects on haematological malignancies. I came to London to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Haemato-Oncology at Barts Cancer Institute (BCI) of the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), identifying and studying the genetic events that lead to the development of familial acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
I have recently moved to the Centre for Genomics and Computational Biology at BCI where I am leading a project on poor-risk AML to gain some novel insights into the biology and new therapeutic avenues for this group of patients through a multi-omic approach.

Aside from my scientific publications, I also have a track record of achievement that includes oral presentations in international conferences, supervision of PhD students, undergraduate teaching at the QMUL and participation in scientific public engagement initiatives. I have been a member of SRUK since I arrived in London, actively participating in various events and being part of the Organizing Committee for the 4th and 5th International Symposium SRUK/CERU and the SRUK Mentoring Programme.
