ESR6 – Alejandra Hernandez-Pichardo

Originally from Mexico, I am a Biologist graduated from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. I continued my education in Europe where I studied for an International Master in Innovative Medicine (IMIM), an Erasmus Mundus joint Master degree. I obtained an MSc degree from the University of Groningen, Netherlands and another one from Uppsala University, Sweden. During my Master degree, I focused on the study of biomaterials for regenerative medicine applications.
In June 2019, I joined the Lévy lab at the University of Liverpool, UK. My research will generate protocols to label and track Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSC) in preclinical models of kidney disease in order to evaluate the cell´s behaviour in vivo.
