Juan Camilo Estrada, PhD
Dr. Juan Camilo Estrada received his Bachelor in Biochemistry from the Autonomous University of Madrid. He earned his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at the prestigious National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases (CNIC). During his Ph.D. program he focused in the study of oxidative stress on genetic stability and biosafety of human stem cells for his therapeutic application. After his doctorate, he specialized in the study of non-canonical activity of telomerase in the cell metabolism and senescence. His works has allowed him to participate in various international conferences and publish several scientific articles in the arena of regenerative medicine and ageing, and develop a patent to identifying new genetic and transcriptional biomarkers of cellular senescence in culture. Dr. Estrada has extensive experience in the field of human molecular cytogenetic with strong handling of different probes (PNA, CEP and LSI) for the chromosome labeling by classic fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and derived techniques as multicolor FISH (M-FISH) and quantitative FISH (Q-FISH).
