Dr. Cristina Sánchez
Cristina Sánchez graduated in Biology at Madrid Complutense University in 1994. Once graduated, she joined Dr. Manuel Guzman’s laboratory, where she studied the effect of cannabinoids on lipid and carbohydrate intermediate metabolism first and on cancer cell proliferation later. She obtained her PhD with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in 2000.
During her postdoc at Dr. Piomelli’s laboratory at UC Irvine she studied the involvement of another group of bioactive lipids on pain initiation.
In 2004, she started coordinating a new line of research within Dr. Guzman’s laboratory.
