Biography

PhD in Biology (1995), University of Alcala de Henares (Madrid; Spain): Molecular characterization of MYB transcription factors from Petunia hybrida (supervisor Prof. J. Paz-Ares). -Postdoc in the laboratory of Prof. Joseph Ecker (1996 to 1999). Characterization of the ethylene signalling pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana. Identification of ETHYLENE-INSENSITIVE3 (EIN3) as the first member of a new family of transcription factors, the EIN3/EIL family. I also identify ERF1, a transcriptional target of EIN3/EILs, which activates defence gene expression. In 2000, I joined the National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB) in Madrid where I got a permanent position to lead a research group on jasmonate signalling in the department of Plant Molecular Genetics. In 2005, I became research associate and in 2009, full professor. From 2004 to 2010, I also headed the Genomics facility of the CNB. I have been a Highly Cited Researcher (Thomson-Reuters) since 2014. In 2016, I was elected an EMBO member.
