New MSc students join our lab! After graduating, María Crugeiras Ríos will continue in the group to carry out her MSc thesis as a student in the Master in Biomedical Research. Amaia Agulleiro Beraza also joins the lab for her MSc thesis within the Master in Chemistry at the Interface with Biology and Materials Science, co-mentored by Dr. Juan R. Granja Guillán at CIQUS.
Today, our paper on the bichemical characterization of S.cerevisiae Yen1 was published online at Nucleic Acids Research. This was one of the first projects of the lab, being initially led by Javier Aguado and subsequently taken up by Raquel Carreira, so we are delighted to finally see it published. You can find it in this link.
The lab welcomes Laura Rivadulla, who will be pursuing her PhD jointly between María de la Fuente´s (IDIS) and our own group. We are grateful both to CIMUS and Ministerio de Universidades for her awards of a "Initiation to Research" and "Formación de Profesorado Universitario" contracts, respectively. Moreover, María Crugeiras will remain in our group to pursue her MSc thesis with us, and hopefully more! Best luck to both!
