Academic Role: PhD Student

Biography: Nuria Pell (Prades, Tarragona, 1991) earned her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Pharmacy from the University of Barcelona in 2014, and her Master of Science in Biomedical Research from the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) in 2015. She performed her scientific research project and Master’s Thesis at the Laboratory of Chromatin Regulation of Human and Viral Gene Expression of the Molecular Genomics Department at the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB-CSIC). She also conducted predoctoral research at the Laboratory of Cancer Therapy of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Barcelona (2011/2012). She also did a research internship at the Department of Human Genetics of the Leiden University Medical Center at the Netherlands (2013/2014), and worked as an associate pharmacist at Farmacia Vidal in Prades (2014). She has also earned the professional Certificate in Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression of the University of Melbourne (2014) and the Certificate in R Programming of the Johns Hopkins University (2015).

Nuria joined the Mercedes Fernandez Lab in September 2015 to perform her Predoctoral Training. She was awarded with a 4-years FPI Predoctoral Research Contract from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) in November 2015. During this period, she has earned the Certificate in Training on Experimental Animal Use and Design of Research Projects of the University of Barcelona (2016). Nuria has also received institutional training on statistical and scientific softwares SPSS and GraphPad (2017), and on Cytometry (2018), and participates in the oficial IDIBAPS Training Programme for Pre and Postdoctoral Researchers (from 2016). Conferences attended include the International Liver Congress of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) (Barcelona, 2016), the Barcelona Biomed Conferences: Epithelial Transitions and Cell Migration (Barcelona, 2016), the Beyond Cancer Genomes, Barcelona Conference on Epigenetics and Cancer; B-Debate, International Center for Scientific Debate (Barcelona, 2016), and the Liver Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) (Washington DC, 2017). In this last meeting, Nuria presented our research in a Parallel Session. She has also been awarded with the 2017 Basic Science Young Investigator Travel Award from AASLD, which recognizes outstanding young basic science researchers working on liver disease. In October 2018, Nuria co-organized and co-presented the Workshop in Vascular Biology Techniques during the European Club for Liver Cell Biology meeting (Bonn, Germany). She also participated as a Faculty Member in the Basic School of Hepatology of the European Association for the Study of Liver (Barcelona, October 2018).
