Almudena Fuster Matanzo

FIELD OF SCHOLARSHIP: Neurobiology

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:

My passion for science sprouted in me at a very early age when I was at high school. That was when I decided to begin my studies to obtain the degree in Biology at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM, Madrid, Spain). During my years at the university I developed a growing interest in Neuroscience. A great part of this motivation arose during my stay in two different laboratories at the faculty (Dr. Mª José Hazen´s Laboratory, Cell Biology Area and Dr. Isabel Molina´s Laboratory, Physiology Area) where I had the opportunity to join in thanks to an Excellence Scholarship for undergraduate students from Comunidad de Madrid (awarded from 2003/2004 to 2005/2006 academic courses). In my last year, I defended my Degree Final Project, developed at Prof. Jesús Ávila´s Laboratory in the Neurobiology Area of the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBMSO), obtaining a mark of 10/10 cum laude and the best Final Degree Project award from de Official College of Biologist from Comunidad de Madrid.

After obtaining my degree in Biology, I began a new and exciting phase as a Ph.D Student. My work at Prof. Ávila´s Laboratory has been funded with two important fellowships from Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) which I was awarded with; an Introduction to Research Fellowship for the first few months and the JAE pre-doctoral Fellowship for a total period of four years. Finally, I got the P.h.D degree in December 2011. From that moment, I have been working as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Jesús Ávila´s laboratory sponsored by a contract from CIBERNED ( “Centro de investigación biomedica en red de enfermedades neurodegenerativas”).
