Ana García del Arco graduated in Biotechnology in 2012 at the University of León, after completing an Erasmus year at the University of Ulm (Germany). Afterwards, she decided to stay in Germany for her PhD, degree she obtained at Heidelberg University (Magna Cumlaude, 2013-2017) with the thesis entitled “Deciphering the role of the histone H3 variant CENP-A in the adult Drosophila intestine” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sylvia Erhardt.
On December 2017, Ana changed research field from epigenetics to signalling pathways and went to Dr. Sergio Acebrón’s lab to investigate on the crosstalk between Wnt signalling and mitosis, and to help with the organization of the lab.
She joined Fernando’s group of Single-Molecule Biophysics of DNA-repair Nanomachines at CNB-CSIC in September 2019. She works full time as project assistant & lab manager, helping Fernando with the coordination of two consortia funded by the Madrid government.
