Héctor Peinado Selgas, PhD
Group Leader @Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas, CNIO
Héctor did his PhD in the laboratory of Dr. Amparo Cano in Madrid (Spain, Biomedical Research Institute “Alberto Sols”) where he specialized in analyzing Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition Mechanisms.
He joined Dr. Lyden’s laboratory at Weill Cornell Medical College, New York as a postdoctoral associate in 2008 to study the crosstalk between tumor cells and bone marrow derived cells during metastatic progression. He then joined the CNIO in 2015 as the group leader of the laboratory of Microenvironment and Metastasis.
His current research goals are focused on understanding the role of tumor-secreted extracellular vesicles in the crosstalk with the tumor microenvironment during metastasis and their use in liquid biopsies.
