- Nadia Mercader Huber
- Junior group leader
Nadia Mercader received her bachelor’s degree in Biology from the Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology (Zurich) in 1998, and was awarded her PhD in
Molecular Biology by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
2003. The subject of her doctoral studies, carried out in Miguel Torres’s
laboratory (CNB-CSIC), was the role of Meis genes during proximodistal vertebrate
limb development. After her PhD, Nadia continued her study of the function
genes during limb regeneration in urodeles. These studies
were performed in Miguel Torres’s laboratory (CNB-CSIC) and in Elly Tanaka’s
laboratory (Max Planck Institute of Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany).
During her postdoc with Carl Neumann at the EMBL (Heidelberg, Germany), Nadia
studied early events in limb induction using zebrafish as a model organism.
Nadia joined the CNIC in March 2007.
