Iñigo received his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of the Basque Country in 2016. One year before, he did an internship in structural biology in the CryoEM of biological macromolecules laboratory of the CICBiogune (Spain).Before starting his master’s degree, he joined Jorge Alegre-Cebollada’s laboratory in the National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (Spain) for a summer internship to deepen his knowledge about how single-molecule techniques, such as atomic force microscopy, can be applied to study cardiomyopathies. After that, he studied a master’s degree in Engineering and Chemistry of Biomolecules at the Université Paris-Sud, doing his master thesis in the Structural Motility laboratory at the Institut Curie (France). In 2017, he started my PhD in the laboratory of Mark Dillingham and Nigel Savery at the University of Bristol. His PhD project is part of the DNARepairman International Training Network and it focuses on studying the role of helicases during transcription.
