Jorge de la Rosa studied biology and completed a PhD in his native Spain. Jorge’s PhD research revealed that a protein causing premature ageing, called prelamin A, can also protect from cancer, settling decades of debate in the research community.
Following on from his PhD, Jorge was awarded a prestigious FEBS Long-Term Fellowship, and decided to move to Cambridge in 2014 to pursue his scientific career under the supervision of Prof. Allan Bradley. His postdoctoral studies focused on using complex genetic models and screening approaches to gain insights into the genetic and non-genetic mechanisms driving prostate cancer. Early this year Jorge was appointed Associate Principal Investigator at the University of Cambridge, hosted by Prof. Bradley in his laboratory.
