About

Originally from Leon (Spain), María was educated in Zaragoza. After studying Biotechnology at the University of Leon, she completed her Master´s in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine at the University of the Basque Country. During her time at Rosa Barrio´s Lab (Ubiquitin-likes and development lab, CICbioGUNE, Bilbao, Spain), she worked on the characterisation of the Townes Brocks Syndrome, a rare genetic disease and surprisingly a recently described ciliopathy. With a strong interest in genetics, she soon became very attracted to the proteomic field, and more specifically to the ubiquitin code. Her PhD thesis will focus on the ubiquitin-proteasome system as part of the UbiCODE program, and under the supervision of Manuel Rodriguez (CNRS-ITAV, France).
