GENOMES & DISEASE

'We investigate the patterns and mechanisms of genomic variation in disease'

Alicia L. Bruzos, PhD student | Cancer Transmissibility

albruzos@gmail.com

While being a student the eagerness of researching was awakened in me and I’ve got the opportunity to collaborate in some research projects that gave me a solid platform to decide to do a PhD. I am currently studying the genetic mechanisms of transmissible cancers using the disseminated neoplasia of cockles as a model. In my spare time, I have a strong desire travel and explore the world and when possible I like to do it with my friends, family and pets. I consider myself a wanderlust soul.
