Three former UDC students, who are now researching abroad, will be in charge of a special edition of our «café scientifiques».
AllGenetics' INFUSCIENCE events are inspired by the «café scientifique» initiative, and are organised in collaboration with Universidade da Coruña and Teagarden. A new INFUSCIENCE will take place at the University's cultural area “Normal” on December 30th.
This special edition of AllGenetics INFUSCIENCE events has been coined "Coming home for Christmas" and commemorates the 25th anniversary of our University, which is being celebrated during the present academic year. Three former UDC students, who are now doing research abroad, will present their work to the local «biological community» during this event.
Alba Rey de la Iglesia, who studied biology at the Faculty of Sciences, is now a research assistant at the Centre for Geogenetics (Statens Naturhistoriske Museum) in Copenhagen and will be giving a talk about her studies on ancient DNA.
Estefanía Porca Belío, who also studied biology at the Faculty of Sciences, holds a postdoctoral position at the Microbial EcoPhysiology & EcoEngineering Lab (National University of Ireland) in Galway. Estefanía studies microorganisms which cause severe damage to prehistoric structures and monuments such as the precious Cave of Altamira, in northern Spain.
Finally, Astrid Pérez Rodríguez, who is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Microbiology (Miami University) in Oxford, Ohio, will be in charge of explaining how SuperBugs, that is, bacteria that are resistant to multiple antibiotics, are fought against in the post-antibiotic era.
