    Soengas, M. Soledad

    Head of the Melanoma Group and the Dean for Academic Affairs at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) in Madrid.

    The long-term goal of the Soengas Laboratory is to translate basic research in melanoma into the clinic by identifying novel tumour markers and drug targets. Her group is particularly interested in mechanisms of cellular stress (involving apoptosis, senescence and lysosomal-mediated degradation) that being selectively deregulated in melanoma, define lineage-specific vulnerabilities (publications in Science, Cell, Cancer Cell, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, among others). Her group has also generated first-in-class lymphoreporter mice for non-invasive imaging of pre-metastatic niches in melanoma (Nature). Her leadership capabilities are illustrated by the coordination and participation in various national and international consortia, exemplified by the Immutrain Marie Curie EU Training Action.
