New postdoc fellow to join our metabolism team in 2011

Patricia Marmol obtained her PhD in November 2009 at the Department of Molecular Biology (Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa) of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. During her thesis, Patricia studied the role of the mitochondrial aspartate-glutamate carrier (AGC1/Aralar/SLC25A12), the key member of the malate-aspartate shuttle, in glucose metabolism in the INS-1 beta cell line and in transgenic AGC1 mutant mice.
