Recent years have seen a paradigm shift in our understanding of gene activity and regulation. It is now clear that processing of primary transcripts as well as translational control open a myriad of opportunities for gene regulation, which are extensively used in virtually every human gene.

The Signalling and Cell Cycle Laboratory focuses on studying the basic mechanisms of cell regulation, especially regarding how external signals are interpreted by cells to modulate cell proliferation, differentiation and survival. Our research centers on two main subjects:


The recognition of many types of DNA lesions activates the cellular DNA damage response (DDR). The DDR orchestrates the appropriate cellular programs to maintain genome integrity after genotoxic stress.

A high resolution description of the structure and dynamics of proteins is a very useful tool to study the properties and the function of these important biomacromolecules and, most importantly, to understand how changes in sequence or environment can lead to disease.


Candidates with a strong interest in the microtubule cytoskeleton who would like to join our group should e-mail a cover letter with CV including contact information for references to

Our research focuses on three angles of peptide and protein chemistry: the design, synthesis and structure of bioactive molecules. From a structural perspective, we apply modern NMR techniques to study complex molecular recognition processes.

Identifican genes relacionados con el diferente grado de agresividad del cáncer según el sexo en la mosca del vinagre

Comprender las bases moleculares de las diferencias en incidencia y supervivencia al cáncer entre hombres y mujeres es importante para encontrar tratamientos específicos y más efectivos. 

El estudio, publicado en Science Advances, compara a nivel molecular tumores cerebrales de moscas macho y hembra e identifica proteínas responsables del diferente grado de agresividad
