I got my degree in biochemistry in 2006, when I started to work in the lab of Prof. Fernando Unda, where I have been since.  During that time, I completed my phD, Estudio de la vía de señalizacion Wbt/b-catenina durante la odontogénesis. There we studied the consequences of in vitro over-activation of Wnt pathway on molar tooth germs at morphogenesis and differentiation stages. We also studied the relationship between Wnt and Epiprofin/Sp6, which has been the object of recent publications. Now I am preparing my post-doc stage associated to the same group, to continue research on signaling pathways related to odontogenesis.
