Please welcome Julia Ramon to Whitney Laboratory!
Julia is a recently graduated biologist student coming from Barcelona who is joining Dr. Martindale’s lab as a research scholar for the next seven months. She received her BSc from the University of Barcelona, where she was first introduced to the science field working in a lab focused on Development and Regeneration. It was also at the University of Barcelona together with the IRB Barcelona Research Center where she got her MSc in Genetics and Genomics. Her background in research has always been related to Drosophila melanogaster, either studying its regeneration or using it as a model for cancer study. Now, she has decided to change the fruit fly for ctenophores and Martindale’s lab is going to help her achieve great discoveries in this open research field.
In her free time, Julia enjoys horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing.
