After my BSc degree in Biotechnology at University of Barcelona, Spain, I received my MSc. in Bioengineering at IQS - University Ramon Llull, Spain. My master project consisted on developing a self-assembled peptide based bioink for three dimensional bioprinting at Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia. My interest towards tissue engineering and cardiac stem cell biology drove me to start as a PhD Candidate at AST group. My main goal is to identify new key molecular pathways and regulatory elements for cardiac subtype specification and enhance its maturation in order to improve the procedures to generate cells for disease modeling and therapeutic applications.
