Biography: I have been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Cornell University since 2006. During the last few years, research in my lab has been focused on the analysis of embryonic morphogenesis in mouse embryos, but my interest in developmental biology dates way back in time …
I attended college at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain, the country where I was born and raised. After I graduated in Biology, I decided to pursue a PhD degree, which I obtained from my work on the patterning of the sensory system of the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster, under the direction of Dr. Juan Modolell. I then packed my stuff to move to the US and joined Dr. Kathryn Anderson's lab at the Sloan-Kettering Institute (New York). As a postdoc in her laboratory, I worked on the identification and characterization of mouse ENU mutants affecting early embryogenesis, a work that I have continued in my own lab.
In addition to research, I teach undergraduate and graduate level courses at Cornell. For more information about BioMG1350, the introductory biology course on cell and developmental biology that I teach, you can visit the course website here.
