​Vanessa Junco Ruisánchez received her first degree in Biotechnology from the University of Oviedo in 2019. She then obtained the Master`s degree of Molecular Biology and Biomedicine from the University of Cantabria and she enjoyed a collaboration grant in the Transcriptional Control of Cancer and Cells and Stem Cells research group at the IBBTEC. She developed her Master`s Thesis in that group about the role of CTCF in the erythroid differentiation and in the regulation of erythroid transcription factors, as well as its alterations in leukemia. Currently, she is working on the same line.
