A Pint of Knowledge is a series of informal research seminars in the pub where members of the society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK) explain their research to a general audience. It takes place every 2 months and is open to the general public..

I am fascinated about the cell and I am in particular interested in how the cell divides. Cell division is a very important process that occurs in all organisms and is essential for life. Importantly, problems in the cell division lead to embryonic lethality and the development of cancer. When the cell undergoes a division, it uses a “spindle”, a beautiful structure that physically separates the genetic material and distributes it equally into the two new daughter cells. I will talk about my research project, which focuses on understanding the formation of this vital structure and aims to provide new ideas for cancer therapies.

This talk is part of the Spanish Researchers in UK (SRUK)-Cambridge series.
