–> Drug development and protein degradation
Dr. Cristina Mayor-Ruiz – IRB, Barcelona, Spain
Cristina Mayor-Ruiz obtained her PhD in 2017 at the CNIO (Madrid) under the supervision of Óscar Fernández-Capetillo, exploring mechanisms of resistance to genotoxic and targeted anticancer therapies. In 2018, she joined the group of Georg Winter at CeMM (Vienna) supported by EMBO and Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowships, where her research interests focused on different aspects of chemical biology and targeted protein degradation. She is now a Principal Investigator in the Mechanisms of Disease unit in The Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona where she studies targeted protein degradation and drug discovery.
