CIC bioGUNE, Spain
Rosa Barrio started her work on ubiquitin-like genes during her PhD at the Center of Molecular Biology Severo Ochoa (Madrid, Spain), where she characterized the ubiquitin genes in Drosophila. She continued with her studies at Harvard University-USA, IMBB-Greece, EMBL-Germany, CBMSO-Spain. She is currently Principal Investigator at the Functional Genomics Unit of CIC bioGUNE. Rosa Barrio coordinated two European projects, one of them dedicated to the training of early stage researchers (ITN program, UPStream); the other grant being a large consortium of European groups interested in the field of the ubiquitin-likes (COST, PROTEOSTASIS).
