  • mercader-nadia

    Mercader, Nadia

    She finished her Degree in Biology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH in Zurich Switzerland in 1998. She joined the group of Miguel Torres at the Centro Nacional de Biotecnología (CNB_CSIC, Madrid, Spain) for her PhD with a Marie Curie PhD fellowship to work on the molecular mechanisms specifying of upper, lower arm and handplate segments during vertebrate limb development. During that time she also got interested in understanding limb regeneration and pursued a project to unravel if developmental programs are repurposed during adult limb regrowth in the axolotl.  In the frame of this project, she visited Elly’s Tanakas laboratory at MPI in Dresden, Germany.. In 2004, an EMBO long term fellowship allowed her to join the group of Carl Neumann at EMBL Heidelberg (Germany) with the aim of learning to handle the zebrafish animal model, as an organisms in with both developmental and regeneration related questions can be assessed simultaneously.

    Rodriguez-Valera, Francisco

    He studied Biology at the University of Barcelona (1974) and defended his thesis at the University of Granada). From the beginning of his scientific career he had interest in the diversity and evolution of microbes. He started working with the communities of halophiles that are found in solar salterns along the coasts of Spain and made pioneering contributions describing many new microbes. He started the large school of Spanish halophilologists that has extended over several universities and research centers and where, even today, they continue being among the leaders in the world in this field.
