    Gonzalez, Leticia

    She was borned in 1971 in Madrid, she graduated in Chemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, carried out a master thesis at the King’s College London, and obtained her PhD with honors in Chemistry in 1998 back at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During her PhD she spent time at the King’s College London, the Dalhousie University in Canada and the Freie Universität in Berlin. In 1999 she moved to the Freie Universität Berlin as a postdoctoral research, where she obtained her Habilitation for Theoretical Chemistry in 2004. In 2005 she was awarded a Guest Professorship from Berlin Women Founds and in 2006 the highly renown Heisenberg Fellowship from the German Research Council (DFG). She was visiting scientist at Northwestern University short before she was appointed permanent Professor at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena in Germany in 2007. In 2011 she became full Professor at the University of Vienna.

  • 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.
