Chair of the FEBS Working Group on the Careers of Young Scientists, University of Seville - CSIC
Dr. Irene Díaz-Moreno is Full Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Institute of Chemical Research of the Scientific Research Centre Isla de la Cartuja – cicCartuja, in Seville (Spain). She was awarded with her Ph.D. with European mention from the University of Seville in 2005. Dr. Irene Díaz-Moreno has worked in collaboration with groups at the Universities of Göteborg (Sweden) and Leiden (The Netherlands) on molecular recognition between metalloproteins involved in electron-transfer processes. She was an EMBO postdoctoral fellow (2006–2008) at the NIMR-MRC in London (UK), working on the regulatory mechanisms of mRNA decay by RNA-binding proteins. In 2010, she got a permanent position at the University of Seville, where she is developing research projects on Biointeractomics field, as well as on the post-translational regulation of biological macromolecules.
I've long been inspired by the life sciences and have a background in scientific editorial work. At FEBS, my roles have spanned communications, website development, event organization and more – all aimed at improving the services FEBS offers the molecular life science community.
