Biography

Dr. Paloma Sánchez-Torres is Senior Researcher and actually is part of Dr Pascual-Ahuir´s Lab in Yeast nanobodies production against pathogenic bacteria. She did her Ph.D. on the Biotechnology of yeasts and filamentous fungi of interest in the food industry in the group of Dr. Daniel Ramón at the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA-CSIC). As a Marie-Curie post-doc, she joined Dr. Visser´s lab in Wageningen (NL) to study protein production and biochemical characterization in GRAS filamentous fungi. She returned to IATA-CSIC Valencia with a reinstatement contract to study postharvest phytopathogenic fungi at Dr. González-Candelas Lab. In 2002, she joined the IVIA through two INIA-CCAA contracts working continuing working in phytopathogenic fungi dealing with fungicide resistance, virulence, and host-pathogen interaction aspects.  In 2016, she joined Dr. Pico´s Lab and started in Synthetic Biology in order to improve bioprocesses through design, optimization, monitoring, and control. In 2018, she returns to the IATA-CSIC to work in Synthetic Biology applied to the development of new fungal platforms as biofactories for the production of biomolecules of agri-food interest together with the Production of new enzymes, enzyme conjugates, and bioactive compounds for food applications.
