Hi, my name is Mercedes Perez, and I am the manager of the Stubbendieck lab.
I am a molecular biologist with broad experience working internationally, including academic institutions in three countries (Spain, France, and the US). I earned my B.Sc. In Biology from the University of Seville (Spain). At The University of Western Brittany (France), I completed the first year of the master’s program in Genetics, Genomics, and Biotechnology. During this period, I led a project on the factors limiting the growth of two critical bacteria for the food industry (Bacillus cereus & Listeria monocytogenes). In the US, I started my career as a lab manager in Professor Kyle Miller’s laboratory at the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Texas at Austin. I worked on various research projects on the molecular mechanisms involved in the repair of DNA damage and genome stability.
My passion for microbiology and molecular biology drives me to join Dr. Stubbendieck’s lab, where I look forward to expanding my skills and contributing to cutting-edge research.
