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.
