Manuel Collado is a Miguel Servet investigator hired at the Health Research Institute of Santiago de Compostela (IDIS) where he is the leader of the “Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging” laboratory since 2012. Before that, he got his PhD from UAM for work performed at the Spanish Biotechnology Center (CNB) in Madrid, Spain, and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in London, UK and at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, USA. He returned to Spain to join Manuel Serrano ́s laboratory first at CNB and later on as a staff scientist at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) where he worked from 2003 to 2012.

During this period, he has published more than 50 papers in high impact journals such as Nature (3 articles), Cell, Cell Stem Cell, PNAS, EMBO J, Genes & Development, Aging Cell, Cancer Research, etc. He is also the author of highly cited reviews in Cell and Nature Reviews Cancer (2).
Along these years, his main scientific focus has been cancer and in particular tumor suppression mechanisms, mainly cell senescence. On this topic, he has authored around 20 papers, some of which have been extensively cited, such as the first description of oncogene-induced senescence in vivo or the description of developmentally programmed senescence.

More recently, he has also been involved in the use of cell reprogramming to induced- pluripotency as a tool to understand molecular mechanisms involved in cancer.

Biologist graduated in 2012 at the University of Vigo. In 2013 she got a Master´s degree in Biomedical Research. At the same time she joined the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging Laboratory, in the Clinical University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela, as a PhD student. Her research is focused on the study of cellular senescence and its relationship with both, physiological and pathological processes.

FRANCISCOFrancisco Triana-Martínez, postdoct student

Biologist. He received his PhD at UAM, Ciudad de Mexico. He joined the lab on October 2016 with a CONACYT fellowship to set HTS screenings of senogenic and senolytic compounds.

He left on October 2018 after completing his postdoc fellowship but he keeps collaborating with the lab now working at CIMUS, USC, in Santiago de Compostela.

 

 

ALBA1 Alba Ferreirós, PhD student

Biologist graduated in 2012 at the University of Santiago de Compostela. In 2013 she got a Master´s degree in Biomedical Research at the same University and that year she joined the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging Laboratory, in the Clinical University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela, as a PhD student obtaining an FPU fellowship. Her research is focused on the reprogramming of cancer cells.

She got her PhD on the 22nd of June 2018 and is now working at the same institute on the Molecular Oncology group.
