Anna obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from Universitat de Barcelona in 2014 before enrolling in the European Master’s program of Genetics at Paris VII University (Paris Diderot). She joined Sophie Polo’s lab in January 2015 for her Master’s internship and pursued as a PhD student. Her project focuses on investigating the possible influence of higher-order chromatin status on histone dynamics after local UV damage in mammalian cells.
