Carmen Salvador-Palomeque started her studies in Biology at the University of Granada in Spain. In 2010 she specialized in Genetics at the Complutense University of Madrid. She obtained a Master Degree in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biomedicine in the School of Chemistry in 2012 at the Complutense University of Madrid. She was interested in Cancer Research and she did her Master’s thesis in the School of Medicine at the Department of Anatomy and Human Embryology on “Characterisation of the transcriptional activity of MyoR and Capsulin”. In the same lab she defended her Tesina in 2012 (equivalent to a PhD mid candidature) on “Cloning and characterizing Polycomb genes during chick development”. From 2013 to 2014 she joined Dr. Jose Luis Garcia-Perez’s lab in GENYO (Pfizer-University of Granada and Andalusian Government Centre for Genomics and Oncology) and started to study LINE-1 activity in Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) and also the interaction of LINE-1 and Tex19.1 in the mammalian germline. In 2014,she obtained an International Scholarship at the University of Queensland (UQI) and joined Prof. Geoffrey J Faulkner’s lab. Carmen’s PhD is focused on the study of LINE-1 activity in neurogenesis and also on the study of LINE-1 activity in Rett syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.
