In 1990, she graduated in Biological Science at the University of Valencia and remained there to undertake a PhD under the supervision of Consuelo Guerri at Research Institution (Instituto de Investigaciones Citológicas), which she completed in 1996. During her PhD, the dissertation was “Changes of astroglia intermediate filaments gene expression during rat brain development: Effect of alcohol exposure”. She analyze the events which occur during the early stages of astrogliogenesis during brain development, using “in vivo” and “in vitro” experiments. She did experiments in cells in culture primary as radial glia (stem cells in brain), astrocytes and neurons.
In 1997, she joined Eva Qwanstrom’s group at the Hallamshire Hospital (University of Sheffiel) in Sheffield, UK and spent three years involved in the identification of an adhesion-regulated subunit of the interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor complex. She was working in immunology, cytokines, inflammation processes and matrix regulation of IL-1 responses.
In 2000, she returned to Spain at Department of Physiology, Medicine Faculty of Valencia. University of Valencia and she was appointed to a part-time position as Lectureship. In 2004, she was appointed to a fixed-term position as permanent University Lecturer at this department in the University of Valencia. During this time she was involved in the mechanisms of oxidative stress in the generation of Alzheimer’s disease with Jose Viña’s group. Also at this time, she developed her lectures with Luis Such’s group with whom she learned a lot about physiology and how to do a correct lecturer to pupils in my our department.
At this moment, she is working in Alzheimer’s diseases and in inflammation and oxidative stress mechanisms. Also she would like to work in precursor cells and the subsequently ability to further differentiate into neurons and astroytes inside the brain. She ordered a grant from my sanity government and is still waiting for the resolution grant, about stem cells and brain.
