Academic Role: Senior Postdoctoral Researcher

Biography: Maria Eugenia Delgado (Esplugues de Llobregat, Barcelona, 1980) earned her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona (2005), her PhD degree in the Department of Physiology and Medical Physics of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (2014) and her Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication from the Barcelona School of Management of the Pompeu Fabra University (2017). Her Doctoral Thesis was entitled “Determining the contributions of caspase-2 and caspase-8 to intracellular protease activities during apoptosis initiation”.  She obtained the Advanced Studies Diploma from the Complutense University of Madrid (2008) and the Tenure-Eligible Lecturer Report from the AQU Catalunya. She conducted predoctoral research at the Department of Engineering and Agro-Biotechnology of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (2003-2006), at the Department of Nutrition, Bromatology and Food Technology of the Complutense University of Madrid (2006-2009), and at the Department of Physiology and Medical Physics of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (2009-2013). She then performed postdoctoral research at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (2013-2014) and at the Department of Biology, Biochemical Pharmacology of the University of Konstanz (Germany) (2014-2020). Eugenia has participated (oral presentations) at the EMBO Meeting on Nuclear Receptors and Biological Networks (Kolymbari, Greece, 2018), the 11th European Workshop on Cell Death (European Workshop on Cell Death Organization) (Fiuggi, Italy, 2018), the EMBO Meeting on Cell Death, Inflammation and Cancer (Obergurgl, Austria, 2017), the 9th Swiss Apoptosis Meeting, Bern University (Bern, Switzerland, 2016), the 10th European Workshop on Cell Death (European Workshop on Cell Death Organization) (Fiuggi, Italy, 2016), the 8th Swiss Apoptosis Meeting, Bern University (Bern, Switzerland, 2011), and the 24th Euroconference on apoptosis, European Cell Death Organization (Barcelona, Spain, 2011). She also has extensive teaching experience at the University of Konstanz (2014-2018), the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (2013), the Complutense University of Madrid (2006-2008), and the National University of Long-Distance Education (2005-2006). Language skills: Spanish and Catalan (native), English (C2 level), and German (B2 level). Eugenia joined the Mercedes Fernandez Lab in January 2021 after being awarded with a prestigious Postdoctoral Research Contract from the Beatriu de Pinós Program of the Catalan Government. She has earned the Official Certificate in Training on Experimental Animal Use and Design of Research Projects of the University of Barcelona (2021).
