In September 2016, I joined the Marie Curie PhD program for the ESR 12 grant of the European Project funded by Marie Curie H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015 Innovative Training Networks, entitled MASS spectrometry TRaining in Protein Lipoxidation ANalysis for Inflammation; “MASSTRPLAN” and started to work in the “Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra” (Coimbra, Portugal), as part of this multidisciplinary network.
In 2012 I finished my Degree in Biotechnology at the Pablo de Olavide University (Seville, Spain), and I started an internship lasting 10 months in the Gene regulation and cellular differentiation unit of the “Instituto de Biología Funcional y Genómica” in Salamanca (Spain).
In September 2013 I joined the Pfizer Center – University of Granada – Andalusian Centre for Genomics and Oncological Research (GENYO) thanks to a grant of the Andalusian Public Foundation for Research Biosanitary Eastern Andalusia – Alejandro Otero (FIBAO) and I started my Master of Science degree in Tissue Engineering at the University of Granada (Granada, Spain).
The main objective of my PhD is to perform the study of modified phospholipids and their protein adducts on monocyte and dendritic cells. With this Phd project it is expected to understand the effect of modified phospholipids and their protein adducts on the immune function of monocytes and dendritic cells, and how inflammatory microenvironment influences their effect.
