Dr. Andrés de la Rocha Muñoz obtained his BSc in Biochemistry at the Complutense University of Madrid in 2014. After obtaining his MSc in 2015, he began his PhD in Molecular Biosciences at the Autonomous University of Madrid under the supervision of Dr. Beatriz López and Dr. Carmen Aragón, leading experts in the study of glycine transporters and neurobiology of glycine terminals. During the 5 years of PhD studies, he focused on better understanding the molecular regulation of the neural glycine transporter GlyT2 (SLC6A5), a presynaptic protein necessary for the maintenance of glycinergic inhibitory neurotransmission. In 2021, he joined Dr. Oscar Palomares’ Lab and obtained a Margarita Salas Grant to continue his career as Postdoctoral Researcher. His current research aims at the study of the molecular mechanisms by which the cross-linking of IgE-high affinity receptor (FcεRI) complexes impairs the tolerogenic capacity of human plasmacytoid dendritic cells.
