Cristina Cruz

Cris did her MSci in Biology at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM). She studied for a Masters in A. Garcia-Bellido’s Developmental Genetics lab at UAM, Centro de Biologia Molecular-Severo Ochoa, where she then undertook her doctorate entitled “Identification and characterization of genes involved in Drosophila melanogaster wing development”. Cris moved to Cambridge to join the lab in May 2010, and works as a Post-Doctoral Research Scientist.
