Scientific Background:

After finishing my undergraduate studies in biochemistry at the University of the Basque Country, I completed the master’s degree in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine at the same university, in collaboration with the University of Cantabria. My final master’s project focused on the study of the mechanism by which molecular chaperones reactivate protein aggregates inside the cell, something essential to prevent the appearance of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, among others. Fascinated by the topic, I continued with my Ph.D. at the same lab. Recently, I moved to Sweden, where I was awarded a scholarship to start a postdoctoral stay at the Gothenburg University. Different techniques, different systems…molecular chaperones again.

Objectives within ACES: 

As the main point of contact in the Goteborg Node, I aim at connecting researchers and creating a solid and long-lasting community that can support each other. I hope to build a nice group that can share ideas, passions, and their free time over some social activities. I am looking forward to welcoming all researchers in the Goteborg area!
