My current experience is based on cell biology and molecular research with a special focus on mitochondrial function and energy metabolism.
In November 2020 I had the opportunity to join Muscle Research Group with the project: "Development of a 3D cell-model of myotubes as a useful tool to study the effects of n-3 fatty acids to counteract obesity and improve muscle functions".
Our aim will be to improve the knowledge of dietary supplements on molecular mechanisms that are central for lipid conversion, energy metabolism, thermogenesis, and muscle protein turnover.
2016-2020: Ph.D. in Health Sciences.Faculty of Health Sciences, Research Institute of Biomedicine of Coruña (Instituto de Investigación en Biomedicina de la Coruña (INIBIC)), University of Coruña, Spain.
- Thesis title: Transmitocondrials cybrids; a useful in vitro model to evaluate the association between mitochondrial DNA and osteoarthrosis
During the second year of Ph.D., I had the opportunity to join Muscle Research Group, UiO, Norway, for two research stays, 1 (October 2017) and 3 months (April-June 2018).
2015-2016: Master’s Degree in Health care and Research. Specialty in Fundamentals of Biomedical Research. Faculty of Health Sciences, Research Institute of Biomedicine of Coruña (Instituto de Investigación en Biomedicina de la Coruña (INIBIC)), University of Coruña, Spain.
- Master's thesis: Transmitochondrial cybrids; a useful in vitro model to evaluate the mtDNA haplogroups H, T, and J role in osteoarthritic disease.
2011-2015: Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, Faculty of Science, University of Coruña, Spain.
- Degree's thesis: Transmitochondrial cybrids; a useful cellular model to evaluate the mtDNA haplogroup T role in the oxidative stress response in the osteoarthritic patient.
