Fernando Aniento

Dpto. Bioquímica y Biología Molecular, ERI BioTecMed, Universitat de València

He is a Group Leader since 1998, when he obtained a permanent position at the University of Valencia. He studied Pharmacy at the University of Valencia and obtained his PhD in Biochemistry in 1991 for his work on intracellular protein degradation in mammalian cells. He did his postdoc in the lab of Jean Gruenberg, first at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany) and later as a Maître Assistant at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), where he investigated the mechanisms involved in protein trafficking along the endocytic pathway in animal cells. Current research in Aniento´s Lab is focused in different aspects of protein trafficking in plant cells, including transport between ER and the Golgi apparatus and the role of proteins of the p24 family and COPI and COPII coat proteins, as well as trafficking of the auxin efflux carrier PIN1
