Biography

MSc in Molecular and Cellular Biology. University of Zaragoza (2009)

PhD  Department of Biochemistry and Celular Biology. University of Zaragoza (2015)

My research has been focused on immunotherapy against hematological tumors. Cytotoxic lymphocytes, T and NK cells, are able to eliminate cancer cells and properly stimulated present potential to eliminate chemotherapy-resistant tumors. The key factor is the recognition to begin the activation of the cytotoxic machinery. At present, I am involved in the development of Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) in T and NK cells against Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia-T (LLA-T)
