About me

After the completion of my PhD studies in Biomedicine at the University of Barcelona (UB, Faculty of Biology) under the supervision of Dr. Anna Gumà I joined Dr. Jorge Ruas’ newly formed unit for the study of Molecular and Cellular Exercise Physiology.  At Dr. Ruas’ lab at KI we are interested in the study of the local and systemic effects of physical activity in overall health and muscle condition. My role here has been to unravel the biological functions of the uncharacterized isoforms of the coactivator PGC-1a, from both a transcriptomic and physiologic approach.
