Isabel Romero

Online Department

I studied Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Salamanca and, during that time, I obtained a Jae-Intro Fellowship (CSIC) to start in Biomedical Research, working in the genetic susceptibility landscape of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer at the IBGM institute of Valladolid. During my last year of graduate studies I continued working in Cancer Genetics with a Collaboration Fellowship funded by the Ministry of Education and Science, this time in the Cancer Research Centre-CSIC of Salamanca. There I was awarded with a FPU Fellowship to do my PhD in the laboratory of Dr. Isidro Sánchez García. I obtained my PhD in December 2014 studying the tumoral stem cell reprogramming hypothesis in mice models and then I joined the CRUK Manchester Institute in March 2015 for a Postdoctoral position in Dr. Tim Somervaille´s lab. I am currently investigating the mechanisms of derepression of a novel gene identified in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. I joined SRUK/CERU in December 2015, and since January 2017 I am a member of the online department and Northwest working group.
