Cristina de la Parte Rodríguez, PhD student
I have always been curious and passionate about Biology, which led me to study Biotechnology at Universidad of León. During those years, I expanded my interest in research, especially biomedical research. This is why I moved to Santiago the Compostela to enroll on the MSc in Biomedical Research. Currently, I am doing my PhD at the Epitranscriptomics and Ageing Lab at CiMUS, where I am exploring the role of RNA modifications in ageing, shedding light to the functions of TET2 and its interactor proteins in young and old cells.
