MicroRNA control of immune tolerance, autoimmunity and cancer


Our laboratory is interested in understanding the cellular and molecular immunological mechanisms of autoimmunity and cancer. Specifically, we focus on studying how microRNAs (miRNAs) and their target genes regulate immune tolerance, autoimmune diseases and antitumor immunity. In addition, we are actively developing innovative genome engineering strategies for therapeutic purposes. Our research is funded by the Spanish National Research Agency (AEI), Scientific Foundation of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (FC AECC), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, L´Oréal Foundation and Community of Madrid (CAM).
