Biography

Santiago Roura was born on July 5, 1974. Santiago graduated in Biochemistry from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) in 1996. In May 2001, he received his Ph.D in Biochemistry from the University of Barcelona debating the thesis entitled “Role of catenins in the regulation of intercellular contacts in the intestinal epithelium”. In May 2001, he received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Barcelona. He is co-author of near 40 scientific papers published on international peer-review journals (IF: 136). In brief, during his trajectory, he has actively contributed to a better knowledge of the transdifferentiation of adult stem cells, including those from bone marrow, adipose tissue and umbilical cord blood, to the cardiomyogenic and endothelial lineage, as well as their behavior and function in animal models of myocardial infarction. In this area of research, he is also participating in the development of novel therapeutic approaches based on cardiac tissue engineering. Moreover, together with Antoni Bayes-Genis, he has contributed to re-examine the pathophysiology of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM) as a downstream complication of marked vascular derangements leading to myocyte damage and loss. At present times, he is paving the way for discovering the cellular and molecular basis of this common primary form of myocardial disease, and more efficient treatments.
