Dr María Banqueri

Biography
I have completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Granada (Spain), where I obtained BSc in Psychology, followed by MSc in cognitive neuroscience and behavior. I was awarded with the FPI grant from the MINECO (Economy and Competitiveness Ministry of Spain Government): BES-2014-070562 to conduct my PhD studies (cum laude) in Oviedo University, plus a postdoctoral training year exploring the psychobiological effects of two early stress models using maternal separation. During the PhD period I had the honor to carry out an internship at the Roslin Institute (Edinburgh University): EEBB-I-17-12051.

Research Interest:
My current collaborative postdoctoral project at the Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology focuses  on microglial control of synaptic function in stress response and vulnerability to depression.
