Jesús Rodríguez Lozano has a pharmacy degree (Complutense University of Madrid / 2009-2014) and he is a Clinical Microbiology and Parasitology specialist ("Marqués de Valdecilla" University Hospital / 2015-2019). He has worked as a clinical microbiologist at the Microbiology Service of "Marqués de Valdecilla" University Hospital (June 2019-September 2019). In November 2019, he was granted with the "Lopez Albo" employment contract for the development of a research project entitled "Implementation of next generation sequencing in the Clinical Microbiology laboratory".

In addition, he is currently completing a university master's degree in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics at the "Universidad Oberta de Catalunya" and he is registered in a pre-doctoral program in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine at the University of Cantabria under the direction of Dr. Garcillán Barcia and Dr. Lucas Gay.

​Functional Plasmidomics

Research lines

Plasmids are genomes with a deep impact in microbial communities, a shared gene pool that allows bacteria to adapt to different environments. By using plasmid comparative genomics, we are identifying and studying key gene functions for cell-to-cell communication, as well as others linked to multirresistant bacteria outbreaks. Some of these functions are also harnessed to build synthetic gene circuits to perform distributed computation in bacterial populations.
