Eugenio Sanchez-Moran obtained the Ph.D. degree from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) studying the molecular basis of meiosis (2001). Then, he obtained a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship to come to the UK under the supervision of Professor Chris Franklin at the University of Birmingham, where he stayed as a Postdoctoral Fellow for a few more years supported by different BBSRC grants (2002-2008). During this time, he contributed to establishing the Birmingham Group at the forefront of cytogenetic research in Arabidopsis. This has resulted in numerous publications in leading journals that have had a broad impact on the functional genetic study of chromosome dynamics during plant cell division. In 2008, he was awarded with a David Phillips Fellowship (BBSRC) that aims to understand the multicomplex and dynamic process of higher-order chromosome organization by investigating the basis of chromatin compaction using the model organism Arabidopsis.
