José Manuel Pérez-Pérez Principal investigator

After my Biology studies at the Universidad de Alicante (España), I did my PhD in the group of Prof. J.L. Micol, at the neighbouring Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (UMH), on the genetic analysis of leaf development in Arabidopsis thaliana.

I carried out my postdoctoral research with Prof. B. Scheres at Utrecht University (The Netherlands), on the link between cell cycle regulators and root growth and development. Afterwards, I came back to the group of Prof. J.L. Micol to work on leaf growth coordination from a Systems Biology perspective.

Since 2009, I am Associate Professor of Genetics at the UMH. In 2012 I started my own research and since 2017 I head the Research Group “Genetics of regeneration and reproductive development of plants (GRID)” at the UMH.

María Salud Justamante Clemente PhD student

María Salud studied Biology at the Universidad de Alicante and followed the Master in Biotechnology and Bioengineering at the UMH. She has been working on in vitro micropropagation of different plant species. Since September 2016 and during her PhD, her study focuses on the phenotypic characterization of adventitious root formation on different carnation varieties.

Aurora Alaguero Cordovilla PhD student

Aurora studied Biology at the Universidad de Alicante and followed the Master in Biotechnology and Bioengineering at the UMH. Since October 2015, she is collaborating on the phenotypic characterization of adventitious root formation on a diverse collection of tomato lines and following the Bioengineering PhD at the UMH.

Paula Jadczak PhD student

Paula studied Biotechnology at the West Pomeranian University of Technology (Szczecin, Poland). She came to our lab for three months during summer 2016 and she is currently following an international PhD between the West Pomeranian University of Technology and the UMH.

Sergio Ibáñez López PhD student

Sergio studied Biotecnology at the UMH and and followed the Master in Biotechnology and Bioengineering, working on transcriptomic analysis during the formation of adventitious organs in tomato. During his Final Degree Project he studied adventitious root formation in Arabidopsis leaf explants. He is currently following the Bioengineering PhD at the UMH.
