Biography

Mayka Sanchez has a PhD in Biology (University of Barcelona, 2002) and is accredited in Human Genetics since 2010 from AEGH. The main interest of her doctoral thesis focused on Hereditary Hemochromatosis, a genetic iron-overload disease. She spent seven years as postdoctoral researcher (2002-2009) in three international and prestigious research centres in Heidelberg, Germany (EMBL, University of Heidelberg and MMPU). Her postdoctoral studies focused in the identification of novel IRE-containing mRNAs controlled by the IRP/IRE regulatory system. Her work has uncovered previously unrecognized mRNAs that specifically interact with IRPs. Since November 2009 I am principal investigator, first as junior group leader at IMPPC (2009-2015), then (2015-2018) as group leader at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) and now as Collaborating Professor and group leader of the Iron Metabolism: Regulation and Diseases group at Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC). She is currently Professor and the research group leader at the UIC (group: Iron Metabolism:Regulation and Diseases) and the co-founder of the start-up company BLOODGENETICS S.L.
