PABLO PRESA, Group leader


Pablo has been into genetic research well before he got his Biology Degree (1989, University of Oviedo, Spain). That was the beginning of an academic career continued by a Ph. D. in Quantitative and Population Genetics (1995, University of Paris-XI, Orsay, France) followed by a postdoctoral EU-Marie Curie STF-9 fellowship (1997, University of Tsukuba, Japan). A new personal era began once established at the University of Vigo where he founded a research group on Marine Genetic Resources in Galicia, a Spanish community where marine resources are part of the DNA of its society.
