Dr. Marta Galán graduated in Biology from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain). She obtained her PhD in Molecular Biology from University Autonoma de Madrid (Spain) at Dr. Elena Fernández-Ruiz’s lab. As a predoctoral, Marta studied a host-pathogen interaction, focusing on both the immunological and the cellular microbiology (Hospital de la Princesa, Molecular Biology Unit, Dra Elena Fernández Ruiz lab).
In her first postdoc, Marta decided to characterized another type of crosstalk: this time between a member of the commensal microbiota (the Segmented Filamentous Bacteria or SFB) and the intestinal epithelial cells, and how the direct contact between them modulates intestinal immune homeostasis (Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Columbia University, New York, Dr. I Ivanov’ lab)
Marta then pursue a second postdoc at Dr. Stavroula Kousteni’s lab, (Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, Columbia University, New York) to study the crosstalk between the bone marrow microenvironment and leukemia cells.
