About: Miguel Ganuza

Miguel Ganuza was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain) in 1981. He was awarded his Ph.D. from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in 2009. His dissertation focused on understanding the roles of Cdk7 in cell cycle and transcriptional regulation. He worked as a Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Mariano Barbacid at the Spanish National Cancer Center (CNIO), Madrid, Spain. From 2012 he has trained as a postdoctoral fellow at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, TN, USA in Shannon McKinney-Freeman’s laboratory. He is interested in the molecular processes governing developmental hematopoiesis and adult bone marrow transplantation.

Christmas Confetti lights to understand the embryonic origins of blood

Posted by on November 1st, 2017

My PhD focused in deciphering molecular mechanisms implicated in cell cycle regulation in embryonic and adult tissues. As many others in this field I became fascinated by the experiments by Yamanaka and colleagues and this prompted me to transition into the stem cell world. For this reason I joined Shannon McKinney-Freeman’s laboratory in 2012. Here,[…]
