Scientific Background

Julia holds a BSc in Biology from the University of Córdoba, Spain, followed by an MSc and a Doctoral degree in Translational Biomedical Research, both obtained from the same institution in collaboration with the Maimonides Biomedical Research Institute of Cordoba (IMIBIC). During her PhD, she identified novel molecular mechanisms in the adipose tissue linked to the onset of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes among individuals living with obesity and their response to bariatric surgery. Notably, she enriched her academic journey with a research stay at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, a pivotal experience that generated her desire to return in the future.

In 2021, she moved to Stockholm as a postdoctoral researcher at the “Molecular Cardiology” lab. Here, she investigates the relationship between environmental cues and endothelial cell dysfunction underlying atherosclerotic disease. With a special focus on epigenetics, her work aims to unveil crucial insights into the development of cardiovascular disorders, paving the way for innovative therapeutic strategies.

Objectives within ACES

As a new member of ACES, Julia was particularly drawn to the opportunity of connecting with fellow Spanish scientists in Sweden and getting to know diverse fields of research. With a strong passion for communication, her main goal is to foster a vibrant scientific community by promoting events and initiatives that facilitate the dissemination of scientific knowledge.  

Recognizing the key role of young and women scientists in driving scientific progress, Julia is also committed to attracting and empowering emerging talents in research. Furthermore, Julia perceives ACES as a fantastic platform not only for newcomers in Sweden but also for researchers transitioning back to Spain. She envisions ACES as a dynamic forum that provides essential support and resources for researchers at various stages of their careers, fostering collaboration and facilitating seamless transitions between academic environments.
