PhD Students & Postdocs Association

The PhD Students & Postdocs association was created on July 2010. It consists of PhD students and postdocs that work at Developmental Biology Andalucian Centre. From the beginning it has been supported by CABD direction. The main objective of this group is to promote the participation of PhD students and Postdocs into CABD scientific life, organizing seminars, workshops and activities that allow them to grow as scientists. This group is represented by the junior committee whose main function is to act as a communication channel between the group of PhD students and Postdocs and the institute director. Its current members are:

Ibai Irastorza: iiraazc(at)upo(dot)es (Damien P. Devos's Lab)

Nacho Maeso: nacho.maeso(at)gmail(dot)com (Jose Luis Gomez Skarmeta's Lab)

Lorena Buono: lbuo(at)upo(dot)es (Juan Ramon Martinez's Lab)

Isabel Almudí: ialmcab(at)upo(dot)es (Fernando Casares's Lab)

Ana Belén Iglesias: abiglrom(at)alu.upo(dot)es (Rafael Rodríguez Daga's Lab)
