Passionate about the molecular genetics of ageing
After completing my Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology at the University of León in Spain, I decided that I wanted to pursue a research focused career. Undeniably, there was a particular reason that brought me to Groningen: the opportunity to join a specialized master's programme focused on the molecular genetics of ageing, the topic that I am most passionate about.
The BMS program allows students to shape their own programme to best suit their own personal goals; a characteristic that is very appealing to many students. Right now, I’m doing a research project at ERIBA under the supervision of Dr. Michael Chang. Taking into account that I’ve become really involved with the project and the fact that there aren't any defined working hours, has made it so that the research project has taken up a lot of my free time lately. Nevertheless, one hobby that has remained constant since I came to Groningen has been singing in a jazz band called “Quiet Room”. Becoming a member of this group not only has been unbelievably rewarding and fun, it has also enhanced my sense of community and creativity!
