    Biography
      Cristina Muñoz-Pinedo carried out her graduate studies at CSIC in Granada, Spain, where she studied how glucose regulates apoptosis induced by death receptors. She underwent postdoctoral training in Doug Green's laboratory at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.​

      Since 2006, Cristina has been led the Cell Death Regulation Group at the Division of Molecular Oncology in the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) in Barcelona, Spain. The main interest of her team is to understand why and how cells die when deprived of nutrients in the context of cancer and brain ischemia.


    Abstract:

    Review the interplay between cell death and cell metabolism, as well as the mechanisms of cell death during cancer and ischemia with Dr Cristina Muñoz-Pinedo. Topics include:

    • Crosstalk between cell death and cell metabolism
    • Targeting metabolism to kill cancer cells
    • Cell death induced by metabolic stress
    • Ischemic cell death
