Eva Mejía Ramírez de Arellano

Dr. Eva Mejía obtained her Bachelor´s degree in Biochemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2001. She performed her PhD studies in Molecular Biology at the Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas-CSIC in Madrid from 2002 to 2006, studying the molecular mechanisms of replication fork blockage in the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe under the direction of Dr. Pablo Hernández Valenzuela. She demonstrated the role of the protein Sap1 in replication fork blockage at the rDNA in S. pombe.

After that, Dr. Mejía moved to the USA to work as a Research Associate in Professor Paul Russell’s lab at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California from 2007 to 2011. She studied the genetics and the molecular mechanisms in S. pombe involved in Replication Checkpoint Maintenance and Double Strand Break Repair. Her results have contributed to the understanding of Brc1 role in Double-Strand Break (DSB) repair during S-phase, and also, the role of the complex Ku80-Ku70 in DSB repair through Homologous Recombination together with Ctp1.

In 2011 she moved back to Spain to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Professor Ferran Azorín’s lab where she studied the function of CENP-B homolog in S. pombe in its role in chromatin organization using ChIP-Seq.

Dr. Mejía joined the CMRB in April of 2013 as a Research Assistant.
