Laura is a scientist with international experience. She holds a PhD in Immunology by the University of Birmingham (UK) and further research experience in haematological cancers during her postdoctoral time at Columbia University (NY, USA). She is currently transitioning into health policy and has been a trainee at the European Commission in the DG of Research and Innovation.
Over the years she has contributed with different organizations and associations to promote science communication, public engagement and women in science such 500 Women Scientists in NYC and with the Association of Spanish researchers in the USA (ECUSA). With science as her passion, she worries about the spread of anti-science policies, such as anti-vaccine movements, and her goal is to communicate science in an understandable and reachable way. Laura loves the outdoors, travelling and dancing. Support Laura’s Homeward Bound fundraising campaign here.
