Dr. Redondo studied for his degree in (Biochemistry, 1982) and his PhD (1987) at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During his doctoral and postdoctoral training he worked in the field of Immunology, mostly on the transcriptional activation and regulation of T lymphocytes and the mechanisms of T cell differentiation. This work was carried out at the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBMSO), the Hospital de la Princesa de Madrid, Harvard Medical School, and Duke Medical Center. Dr. Redondo started his own laboratory in 1995, initially at the CBMSO (CSIC/UAM), and his area of interest expanded to the transcriptional regulation of endothelial activation, angiogenesis and inflammation. Much of his work centers on the regulation and function of the calcineurin/NFAT signaling pathway. Apart from its implication in the processes mentioned above, this pathway plays important roles in chronic inflammatory diseases, cardiac hypertrophy and ischemic retinopathy. All of these physiological and pathophysiological processes are the focus of research in Dr. Redondo’s group. Through an agreement with the CSIC, of which he is a Profesor de Investigación, in November 2001 Dr. Redondo joined the CNIC, where he is a Senior Researcher in the Department of Vascular Biology and Inflammation
