Inés Martínez Martín graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). As an undergraduate student, she participated in different internships at research laboratories at Instituto Cajal, CSIC (Madrid, Spain), Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (Madrid, Spain) and Institute of Molecular Pathology (Vienna, Austria). She also spent one semester of her degree at Boston University (Boston, USA).
In 2019 she graduated with a master’s degree in Physics of Condensed Matter and Biological Systems from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and carried out her master thesis’s work at the Molecular Mechanics of the Cardiovascular System lab thanks to a CNIC ACCIONA master's fellowship. Then, funded by an Erasmus+ Traineeship she spent 6 months at EMBL (Hamburg, Germany) learning about X-Ray Crystallography and Protein Biophysics.
From 2020 she is a PhD student at the Molecular Mechanics of the Cardiovascular System lab at CNIC, funded by a “La Caixa INPHINIT Retaining” fellowship Her work focusses on the impact of redox posttranslational modifications in the mechanical properties of muscle, and their importance in the correct function of the heart.
