Aina Mogas Barcons


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

After finishing my MSc and BSc degrees in Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, I moved to the UK to complete a PhD in neural tissue engineering and neuroregeneration at Keele University. Next, I started a Research Associate role at the University of Sheffield (SITraN), where I characterised patient-derived dopaminergic neurons with specific Parkinson's Disease mutations. Specifically, I characterised the mitochondrial clearance and lysosomal phenotypes of these cells compared to healthy controls. I am currently working as a Research Associate at the University of Oxford in the Wade-Martins group. Similarly to my previous project, I am focussing on targeting mitochondrial pathology in Parkinson's Disease. In this case, with specific focus to the role of ubiquitination to modify pathogenic phenotypes.
