Cristina Benito Villalvilla was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1993. She obtained her degree in Biochemistry in 2015 at Complutense University of Madrid. In 2014, she joined to the group of Dr. Oscar Palomares with an undergraduate collaboration grant from MEC (Ministry of Education and Science) to carry out her final degree project about the elucidation of the immunological mechanisms imprinted by bacterial vaccines in human dendritic cells. In 2015, she started the Master Degree in Investigation in Immunology at Complutense University of Madrid, while she continued her work about polyvalent bacterial vaccines for the treatment of recurrent urinary tract infections under the supervision of Dr. Palomares. Currently, she has a predoctoral contract by which she is working in a research project to study the immunomodulatory mechanism of novel vaccines generated by coupling glutaraldehyde-polymerized grass pollen allergoids to nonoxidized mannan.
