Mari-Carmen received her PhD at the University of Seville, Spain, where she studied the molecular mechanism of acute oxygen sensing in the Institute of Biomedicine of Seville (IBiS) with Dr. Lopez-Barneo. Then she moved to Boston to join Dr. Danial's lab at DFCI/Harvard as a postdoc. Her research focused on the effect of different nutrient utilization on neuronal excitability and, ultimately, on brain activity with the goal of developing new diet and drug-based therapies for pathologies such as epilepsy. Mari-Carmen joined Cell Metabolism in 2020 as a Scientific Editor.
