The following session of the program of lectures Valdecilla Progress Reports will take place on April 11 and it will be given by María Iglesias, Dept. of Autoimmunity and Trasplantation, and María Carcelen, group of cytokines and growth factors pathological tissue plasticity phenomena at the Instituto de Investigación Valdecilla (IDIVAL), who will present their scientific advances of their current projects.
Speaker: María Iglesias
Session: Utility of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) in monitoring renal transplant patients.
María Iglesias Escudero is PhD student, Dept. of Autoimmunity and Trasplantation, Instituto de Investigación Valdecilla (IDIVAL), Santander, Spain.
In 2016 she finished the period of training for specialists in Immunology and she obtained the Immunology Specialist qualification (Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Spain). During this four-year training period she complemented daily clinical practice with research work, participating in projects within department lines of study: transplant, coronary pathology immune aging and arthropathies immune aging. As Immunology resident, she decided to increase her training in the area of Histocompatibility and Transplantation. She had also previously trained in the area of Histocompatibility and Transplantation in 2011 in the Dept. of Immunology-Genetics, Hospital Universitario Infanta Cristina de Badajoz, Spain. She is currently developing her activity as a predoctoral researcher at IDIVAL.
Speaker: María Carcelen
Session: MicroRNAs and neuropathic pain
María Carcelen Labrador is a PhD student in the group of cytokines and growth factors pathological tissue plasticity phenomena at the Instituto de Investigación Valdecilla (IDIVAL), Santander, Spain.
She gained her degree in Health Biology at the Universidad de Alcalá in Madrid in 2015. Then she studied a Master of Microbiology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Since then, she is training in different techniques and subjects like molecular biology, microscopies, etc. She is currently developing her activity as a predoctoral researcher at IDIVAL.
Each speaker will talk about 15 minutes followed by a small debate and at the end, coffee will be served to continue the conversation and encourage interaction between participants and attendees.
The meeting will take place on April 11, in lecture room 4-5, pavilion 16 of the HUMV (1st floor) and has a capacity of 30 people.
