The research work entitled “Retinoid X receptor promotes hematopoietic stem cell fitness and quiescence
and preserves hematopoietic homeostasis” published in the journal Blood and carried out by the "Nuclear
Receptor Signaling" group led by Dr. Mercedes Ricote, has been highlighted on the cover of the journal.

Once the Covid pandemic has allowed it, Ana Paredes and María Gómez-Serrano (Philipps-Universität Marburg)
celebrated the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (February 11, 2022) with the students of IES El Espinillo (Madrid).
At the meeting they were able to convey to the students the importance of achieving equal opportunities between men and women
in the scientific system and to share with them their professional experience as a source of inspiration and motivation.
Ana Paredes and María Goméz-Serrano (Philipps-Universität Marburg) celebrated the International Day of Women and Girls
in Science (11 February, 2020) with students from IES El Espinillo (Madrid). They enjoyed talking about the different aspects of being
scientists, the currentsituation ofequality in science as well as the key role of the upcoming generations in this matter.
