Welcome David Ríos Covián, Director of Technology Development, on board.

David obtained his BS in Biology (2010) and MS (2011) in Food Biotechnology at the University of Oviedo. In addition, he obtained his PhD (2016) in Biology by the University of Oviedo with a project focused on metabolic interactions between members of the commensal microbiota. During this stage he gained expertise in several techniques in different international research centers.

His main scientific interest is host-microbiome relationships. During his postdoc at UCSD, he studied these interactions in the context of mucosal immunology and responses to DNA damage. After that, he joined the institute MICALIS (INRAE) to study them in the context of immune system development during early life.

Looking forward to complete a great team!
