'We investigate the impact of mobile DNA on disease, and the genetic mechanisms that make cancers transmissible'

Jenifer Brea Iglesias, MSc student


"Understanding life has always been one of my main concerns, being the reason why I studied biology. Everything I experienced and learned during this stage has awakened in me a huge interest to participate actively in the fight against cancer. For that reason, since the moment I discovered the relationship between transposable elements and this pathology I knew I wanted to develop my career in this field, because I think it is really innovative and it has high expectations for the future.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love to do activities in nature like hiking, riding a bike or even reading. I really love nature."
