Biography
 

Carmen Agustín Pavón was born in Valencia in 1980. She graduated in Biology in 2003 with Honours (Premio Extraordinario de Licenciatura), at the University of Valencia. She earned her PhD in 2008 in the same University, with a thesis about the neurochemistry of pheromone-guided sociosexual behaviours. Her thesis was granted the Best PhD Thesis Award (Premio Extraordinario de Doctorado). She completed her pre-doctoral training with a short stay at Università di Roma La Sapienza (Sep-Dec 2006).

After her PhD, she was hired as Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge (Jan 2009- Oct 2010), where she investigated the emotional regulation in non-human primates, with a focus on the role of the prefrontal cortex. She then moved to the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona (Nov 2011- Dec 2013) as Senior Postdoctoral Researcher to work in a team developing gene therapy for Huntington’s disease. She also collaborated with other projects dealing with animal models for neurological diseases. One of these projects resulted in a paper published in Nature Medicine, which received the Award for the Best Scientific Paper from Fundación Esteve in 2013. She moved with this team to Imperial College London (Jan 2014 – Sep 2014). In October 2014, she earned a Researcher Position at University Jaume I of Castellón, where she became Lecturer at the Medical Degree in September 2015. In October 2016, she came back to University of Valencia as Lecturer. Her lab is interested in the neurobiology of social behaviour, olfactory system and Rett syndrome. 

In addition to her research activity, Carmen is devoted to science communication. She won in 2011 the El·lipse Award for Scientific Communication (Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona) and greatly contributed to her research group winning the Award Banco Santander for Science Outreach at the University Jaume I in 2017.

Biography
 

My research aims to reveal the fundamental basis of desiccation and low temperature stress tolerance in seeds and other plant propagules, particularly in relation to successful cryopreservation. In addition, I am interested in the variation in longevity in plant propagules, from bryophyte and fern spores as a unicellular model to more complex systems. Often these studies involve making structural and biophysical determinations. At the university, I carry out teaching activities in Botany. I also carry out training activities on cryobiotechnology for technical staff and researchers and supervise undergraduate (MSc and PhD) students and postdocs.

Biography
 

Mária Džunková got her first experience with the high throughput DNA sequencing at the Czech Academy of Sciences at the time when she  studied at the University of Life Sciences in Prague (2005-2010). Then she moved to Spain for her PhD studies at the University of Valencia (2010-2016) which included a research stay at the Harvard University (2014). After defending her PhD thesis entitled ”Metagenomics of the Human Gut Microbiome Directed by the Flow Cytometry” she got a postdoc position at the Australian Centre for Ecogenomics at the University of Queensland (2016-2019), where she developed “single-cell viral tagging” method for exploring the phage host range without the need for microbial culturing and applied it to the human gut microbiome. She was invited to a second postdoc (2016-2021) at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) to continue with her microbial single-cell genomics techniques. In California she studied the relationships between the phages and bacteria in environmental samples and explored new targeted single-cell genomics techniques for discovering symbiotic microbes of the marine soft-bodied animals capable of producing bioactive molecules. She joined the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio) in December 2021 to set up her Microbial Single-Cell Genomics research group.

Biography
 

My connection with the University of Valencia began with my studies in the Biotechnology Degree. During these years I discovered my interest in research, especially in the food and industrial sector. As a result, I started the Master's Degree in R&D in Biotechnology and Biomedicine (UV) to continue my training and enter the world of research. During this period of time I developed my Master's Final Project at the Institute of Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio), focused on the study of the redox regulation of metabolism in wine yeasts. Upon completion, I started my PhD studies at I2SysBio, specifically in the Industrial Yeast Biotechnology group, thanks to the initial award of a predoctoral contract (ACIF20) from the Generalitat Valenciana and the subsequent award of a predoctoral contract Atracció de Talents 2020 from the University of Valencia. The main objective of this doctoral thesis is to study the regulation of different redox proteins in wine yeasts, analysing what impact they have on the metabolism of these microorganisms in the different stages of their industrial use. This could lead to the selection and improvement of both oenological yeasts and their growth conditions, enabling their transfer to industry.

Biography
 

M.L. Gil graduated in Pharmacy at the University of Valencia (UV) in 1985. She received a PhD in 1989 for research on the identification of cell-wall proteins of Candida albicans at the Microbiology Department (UV). As a post-doctoral fellow she joined Didier Fradelizi Immunoloy laboratory at the Institute Gustave Roussy, in Paris. During the post-doctoral she graduated in Immunology at the Pasteur Institute and also participated in research that led to the identification of a new human leukocyte molecule (CD82). Back in Spain, in 1994, she was appointed as Assitant Professor, and in 1999, as Associate Professor, at the University of Valencia. In 2004 she started an independent research group that focused on the antifungal innate immunity and was promoted to Full Professor at the University of Valencia in 2011.    

Since her return to Spain, her research has focused on studying the pathogen/host interaction during candidiasis. In the first years, the research focused on the characterization of virulence factors of the fungus, then to address the study of the immune response, and specifically the participation of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the recognition of C. albicans, Since 2007, it has extended the study of the participation of TLRs in the interaction of C. albicans with the immune system, to hematopoietic stem cells, following the discovery that these cells express functional TLRs. Her main line of current research examines how the activation of PRRs in stem cells and hematopoietic progenitors, induces myeloid differentiation as well as in the implications in the phenotype of the macrophages they generate and in the protection against candidiasis; the results obtained show that the "memory" of innate immunity affects not only monocytes and macrophages but also the progenitors.

Biography
 

Fernando Gonzalez Candelas, PhD (University of Valencia, 1987) is Professor of Genetics at the University of Valencia since 2006 and head of the “Evolution and Health” Research Unit at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology UV-CSIC (I2SysBio) at the same university. In addition, he has a joint appointment at the FISABIO-Public Health through the joint research unit “Infection and Public Health” with the University of Valencia and at the CIBERESP (Centre for Networked Research on Biomedicine – Public Health and Epidemiology).
    My main research interests are in population and evolutionary genetics, molecular and evolutionary epidemiology, molecular systematics and genomics, bioinformatics and conservation biology. I am currently working on the molecular evolutionary epidemiology of different pathogens, mainly RNA viruses, such as hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and bacteria, such as Legionella pneumophila, Treponema pallidum, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Our basic approach is the analysis of nucleotide sequence variability at different levels, from intrapatient to world-wide samples, and from particular genes to complete genomes, depending on the specific goals of the different projects. Previously I have studied the population and evolutionary biology of Mediterranean endemic Limonium (Plumbaginaceae) species, by using an array of genetic markers (RAPDs, AFLPs, microsatellites, isozymes) and including the analysis of quantitative traits. I have published more than 250 peer-reviewed scientific papers and written two books.

Biography
 

Dr Torres-Pérez (he/him) is a neurobiologist interested on the epigenetic landscape regulating neural development and its impact on neurodegenerative disorders. He is currently working at University of Valencia (UV) as a distinghuished researcher under the Maria Zambrano's program (Ministry of Universities, Spain). He has been successfully involved in a wide range of multi-disciplinary projects spanning from clinical settings to academic scenarios with engineers/materials scientists and experimental psychologists.

Dr Torres-Pérez gained his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Valencia (UV) and then moved to Oxford for a 6-month internship at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics. After that, Dr Torres-Pérez did a MRes in Neuroscience at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. For his PhD in Clinical Medicine Research, Dr Torres-Pérez worked with Dr Istvan Nagy at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Imperial College London. He investigated the role different epigenetic tags, mainly histone post-translational modifications, play on the transition from acute to chronic pain at neurons and glial cells of both spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia.

Dr Torres-Pérez has held two postdoctoral positions at Queen Mary University of London. First at the School of Engineering and Materials Science, where he was performing high-resolution electrophysiology of primary cilia and single cell calcium recordings. Secondly, at the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, where he used zebrafish as a reverse genetic model for comparative cognition.

Biography
 

I obtained my Bachelor, Postgraduate and PhD degrees in the University of Valencia, Spain. My doctoral research focused on the role of pattern recognition receptors expressed by hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in the detection of Candida albicans and the emergency myelopoiesis response. I was awarded with a “Outstanding PhD Thesis” from the University of Valencia.

In 2011, I joined the Regenerative Medicine Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA, as a postdoctoral fellow. During this time, I studied the differentiation and function of myeloid cells (macrophages, dendritic cells and neutrophils) with specific application to anti-microbial immunity, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. I obtained a Young Investigator Award from the International Endotoxin and Innate Immunity Society, a Careers in Immunology Fellowship Award by The American Association of Immunologists and a Career-Enhancement Award from the American Society of Hematology.

In 2018, I established my independent research group at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as an Assistant Professor. In 2019, I received a Ramón y Cajal award from the Ministry of Education and Science, Spain, and I moved back to the University of Valencia, Spain.

My lab is interested in: 1) defining the cellular and molecular pathways activated for emergency myelopoiesis in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells during candidiasis, 2) unveiling the mechanisms of innate trained immunity induced by fungal infections, and 3) studying the use of microbial components to induce terminal differentiation of malignant cells in some hematologic disorders, such as acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes.
