Since the beginning of my university training I had clear my scientific vocation, especially directed to the field of oncology, after my degree in Biology (Molecular and Cellular) from the University of Alcalá and my PhD in Biochemistry from the Autonomous University, I continued my post-doctoral training at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, under the supervision of Dr. Bruno Amati. During that period I described the dual regulation of c-MYC by c-ABL and BCR-ABL, with implications in breast cancer and chronic myeloid leukemia and acquired a deep background in epigenetics. After my return to Spain, I joined Dr. Francisco X Real’s group at the CNIO as a researcher, where we demonstrated the role of c-MYC in the regulation of acinar cell differentiation and its de-regulation during transformation in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. In 2017, I joined the Francisco de Vitoria University (UFV) as an associate professor and researcher leading the molecular oncology group. In 2018, I constitute, thanks to a collaboration agreement between the Department of Anatomic Pathology of the Hospital 12 de Octubre and the University Francisco de Vitoria, the molecular oncology group mixed unit UFV-H12O that I currently direct. These achievements have also allowed me to be a reviewer in different scientific journals (PlosOne, Gut and Nature Communications) and guest editor in Frontiers in Oncology.
