Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow

BSc., Ph.D. (Madrid)

I have studied development for 25 years. First, as a Ph.D. student with Antonio Garcia-Bellido in Madrid, Spain; then, as a postdoc with Alfonso Martinez-Arias at the University of Cambridge, focusing on the identification of the Wnt signaling pathway. After 5 years in Cambridge, I became a lecturer at Royal Holloway College, University of London and started my research group to study appendage development in Drosophila. In 1999 I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Senior Research fellowship to continue this work and move my laboratory to the University of Sussex, where I remain and become a professor in 2010.
