Involvement in SRUK/CERU

Montse completed her undergraduate studies in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Barcelona (UB), where she was a part of Dr. Jiménez’s laboratory. There, she researched the molecular mechanisms and pathways that regulate gene expression during animal development. After completing her degree, she moved to the United Kingdom in 2020 to pursue a Master’s in Clinical Embryology at the University of Oxford. In 2022, she began her Ph.D. at the same university, specializing in the field of Women’s Health and Reproduction. As part of Prof. Kevin Cowar’s research group, her current research focuses on exploring potential methods for drug delivery to gametes and in vitro embryos. Montse joined CERU in the spring of 2023 and is involved in the working group of the Oxford delegation.

In addition to her research in reproductive health, Montse is actively engaged in scientific outreach through her TikTok profile (@reprociencia), where she shares information about sexual health and provides a glimpse into her life in the laboratory. In her free time, she enjoys preparing traditional Spanish and Catalan dishes, dancing salsa, and reading historical novels.
