Maria Angeles de la Torre-Ruiz
Maria Angeles de la Torre-Ruiz received his Ph.D. degree in fungal Biodeterioration from the Department of Microbiology at the C.I.B (Biology Research Center) C.S.I.C. in Madrid (Spain). She had her first postdoctoral training at Dr. Ramon Díaz Orejas Laboratory. She was trained in molecular microbiology studying a stability system in E.coli. After that, she moved to the University of Lleida (Spain), where she was involved in the study of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell cycle. Following this, she did a third postdoctoral period at the Imperial Cancer Research (South Mims, London, UK) under the supervision of Dr. Noel Lowndes. She was working in the characterization of DNA damage checkpoints in budding yeast. She obtained a position back to Spain as a Professor of microbiology at the Faculty of Medicine, the University of Lleida. She settled her own Research Group (Cell Signalling in Yeast) studying cell signalling in response to environmental stresses, basically oxidative stress, in the model system Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Currently, she serves as the Head of the above-mentioned group at the University of Lleida (Spain).
