Lorena García Gaipo obtained her Degree in Biology at the University of León and her Master's Degree in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine at the University of Cantabria. Currently, she is completing her PhD under the supervision of Dolores Delgado and Javier León. Her research work is focused on investigating the role of CTCF in the regulation of erythroid cell differentiation in human hematopoietic cells and the effects of epigenetic drugs in the treatment of aggressive B-cell lymphomas.
