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 in 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 of Meis 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.

Nadia Mercader received an ERC Starting Grant in 2004.

Since August 2015 Nadia Mercader is Professor at University of Bern (Switzerland) and Visiting Professor at CNIC.
