Postdoctoral Research Scientist - Protein and Antibody Production

Research

I obtained my PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.  During my early research years I studied the innate immune system as a source of novel antibiotics, using the antimicrobial structural determinants of the human ribonucleases to develop new therapeutic agents.

After my PhD I moved to Imperial College London as a Postdoctoral Scientist in Professor Hohenester's Laboratory, where I expanded my knowledge and skills in protein production, structural biology and biophysics, especially in X-ray crystallography.

After my first postdoctoral experience I moved to the Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Oxford, where I consolidated myself as a structural biologist and protein production expert, developing novel drugs against autophagy regulators.

Currently, I am a Senior Postdoctoral Scientist working in Professor Simon J Draper's laboratory at the Jenner Institute, University of Oxford. My work is focused in the identification of improved antigen targets within the blood-stage merozoite malaria parasite; and the development and production of structure-guided protein based vaccines according to GMP standards.
