My expertise in understanding the molecular mechanisms leading to organ regeneration was recognized with the prestigious ERC-Starting grant in 2014 and recently with an ERC Consolidator Grant (call 2020). After receiving a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship (first ranked candidate, 100/100 points) I became Junior Group Leader (2015) at IBEC. I received 9 M€ in funded projects and published 64 papers including journals as Cell, Cell Stem Cell, Cell Metabolism, Nature Materials, among others. My h-index is 32. I gave >150 invited talks and participated and > 200 outreach activities. I am devoted to translating my findings into the clinics relaying on collaborations with world-recognized clinicians and basic scientists. I combined my research activity being Deputy Director at the CMRB (2011-13) and IBEC (2018-today).
