Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Elisa Monzon-Casanova

Elisa graduated from the University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2005 with a M.Sc. in Biology, with the specialisation in Sanitary Biology. In 2006 she continued her studies with a Master in Experimental Biology granted by the University of Barcelona, but carried out in Germany, working on rat non-classical MHC II molecules. She received her PhD in Immunology from the University of Würzburg, Germany, where she stayed one additional year as a postdoctoral scientist. During her PhD she worked on the characterization and identification of iNKT cells in the rat in the laboratory of Thomas Herrmann. She joined Martin Turner’s group in 2012 as a postdoctoral scientist to investigate the role of PTB proteins in the immune system in collaboration with Chris Smith from the Biochemistry Department of the University of Cambridge.
