Carlos José Martos Rodríguez
Carlos holds a Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology by Pablo de Olavide University in 2013 and an MSc in Regenerative Biomedicine in 2014 from Granada University, in Spain.
As a Ph.D. student at CNIC, he has been working to decipher the most important phenomenon in atheromata stability: the mechanisms driving fibrous cap formation. Carlos focuses on the importance of Notch signaling in vasculogenesis, where he is trying to assess the role this pathway plays in smooth muscle cell differentiation in order to form the cap. Besides, he also teaches at Nebrija University.
In his spare time, he likes watching ballet, reading philosophy, and wasting time with weird videos on YouTube.
