Laura Alonso Herranz
Laura completed her Ph.D. at the Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC) in Spain, where she studied the role of macrophages in inflammation and healing following myocardial infarction.
In 2020 she joined Bentzon's lab where she works as a postdoc. Her research focuses on the mechanisms regulating collagen production and the crosstalk between macrophages and smooth muscle cells in atherosclerosis progression.
Outside the lab, Laura enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
