Carmen Fenoll

Carmen Fenoll obtained her PhD in Biological Sciences at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid/ National Research Council-CSIC, working on photosynthetic bacteria. She moved to the field of plant molecular biology as a Fulbright postdoc at the University of California-San Diego (CA) and established her group at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1990 as an Associate Professor. In 2000, she moved to the Universidad de Castilla-la Mancha as part of a team to set up a new Faculty and Research Institute on Environmental Sciences in Toledo (Spain). Since then, she is Professor of Plant Biology at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Biochemistry in that University, where she teaches molecular biology, genetic engineering, genomics, plant physiology and biotechnology. She coordinates the research group on Plant Biotechnology and Molecular Biology, interested in the regulation of gene expression and cell differentiation and development using molecular genetics and genomics in several biological systems, one of which is nematode feeding sites induced by Meloidogyne spp. in Arabidopsis thaliana. She has also been Visiting Scientist at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA, and Tinker Full Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison
