About me

Dr. Duran-Ferrer graduated in 2012 from the University of Vic (Spain) with a degree in Biotechnology. He next moved to Madrid (Spain) to graduate with the Master in Molecular Biomedicine from the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain), and obtained the Santander Crue Cpyme fellowship 2013 for doing a research internship in the company Laminar Pharma (Palma, Spain). Next, he moved to Barcelona (Spain) to graduate with honors in the Master in Omics Data Analyses (UVIC) to subsequently start his PhD in the University of Barcelona in 2015. He completed his PhD degree with honors in late 2020, in which he studied the role of epigenetics in normal B cell development and malignant transformation. In 2021, in recognition for his early career trajectory and work during his PhD, Dr. Duran-Ferrer wa
