Cristina Llavata Peris

PhD Student

Brief Description
I studied Biology in Valencia (my hometown). After finishing I performed a brief internship in Germany working for the DKFZ (German Cancer Research Center). After that I moved to Italy in order to do my master thesis in the University of Rom “La Sapienza” in Sabrina Sabatini’s lab. Finally I started in March 2009 my PhD studies in Wageningen’s University working in Dolf Weijers group.

I moved a lot but I was so lucky to feel in each place like at home.
