Dr. Martínez Arias joined the UPF Department of Experimental and Health Sciences as an ICREA senior research professor earlier this year. He has made outstanding contributions in the molecular underpinning of cell fate heterogeneity and self-organization properties of cell behaviour during development. We are pleased to have him officially part of CATCAT and look forward to fruitful interactions and collaborations.
