Manuel Collado is a Miguel Servet II investigator at the Health Research Institute of Santiago de Compostela (IDIS) where he leads the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging Laboratory since 2012. Before that, he obtained his PhD at UAM in Madrid in 1997 for work done at CNB (CSIC-UAM) and was a postdoctoral student, first at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in London, UK, and later at NYU Medical School and at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, USA. He returned to Madrid, Spain, in 2001 to join Manuel Serrano´s group at CNB. The laboratory moved in 2003 to the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), where he worked for almost 9 years as staff scientist.

During his career, he has published more than 60 papers, several of them in high impact journal such as Nature (3 articles), Cell, Cancer Cell, Cell Stem Cell, PNAS, EMBO J, Genes & Development, Nature Communications, Aging Cell, Cancer Research, etc. He is also the author of some the most cited reviews in his field published in Nature Reviews Cancer (2 reviews) and Cell (2 reviews).

Along the years, his scientific work has been mainly focused on cancer and in particular tumour suppression mechanisms, working mainly on cell senescence. On this subject he has published more than 20 articles, among them the first in vivo description of oncogene-induced senescence in Nature (more than 900 cited) or the identification of programmed cell senescence during embryo development (a “highly cited article” in his field according to Thompson´s Web of Science), and more recently the description of a new family of senolytic compounds (Nature Communications).

In recent years he has also worked on cellular reprogramming to induced-pluripotent stem cell, having contributed a highly cited paper (more than 600 citations) published in Nature, and others in Cell Stem Cell, Oncotarget or Stem Cell Reports.

He was elected for the International Cell Senescence Association, ICSA, steering committee in 2017, and organized its second international meeting in Santiago de Compostela in 2015.

During the last 5 years his laboratory has published 22 papers.

SDASILVASabela Da Silva-Álvarez, postdoc

sabela (at) outlook.com

Biologist graduated in 2012 at the University of Vigo. In 2013 she got a Master´s degree in Biomedical Research. At the same time she joined the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging Laboratory, in the Clinical University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela, as a PhD student.  She obtained her PhD in 2019 studying cell senescence and its relationship with physiological and pathological processes.

PABLO2Pablo Pedrosa, PhD student

Biologist graduated in 2015 at the University of Santiago. In 2016 he got a Master´s degree in Biomedical Research at USC workin at the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging Laboratory, in the Clinical University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela. He decided to continue his work in the lab to get his PhD. His research is focused on the use of cellular reprogramming to better understand cancer and aging. He received a Xunta de Galicia fellowship in 2017 for his doctoral studies.

valentin.estevez (at) rai.usc.es

Biologist graduated in 2018 at the University of Santiago de Compostela. In 2019 he got a Master’s degree in Genomics and Genetics at the Stem Cells in Cancer and Aging, in the Clinical University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela. He decided to continue his work in the lab to get his PhD. He is interesting in the relationship between senescence associated secretory phenotype (SASP) and small extracellular vesicles in the induction of paracrine senescence.
