Biography

Dr. Martinez de Morentin obtained his bachelor degree in Biology, specialized in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain in 2008. He moved to the Department of Physiology to pursue a Master’s Degree in 2010 and PhD in Endocrinology in 2013 under the supervision of Prof Miguel Lopez and Carlos Dieguez.  His graduate work investigated how the brain regulates whole body energy homeostasis, with a particular emphasis on hormones (estrogen, thyroid hormone) and exogenous compounds (nicotine) modulating the cellular energy sensor AMPK in the brain; and their link to the brown adipose tissue thermogenic processes and body weight maintenance.

Dr. Martinez de Morentin was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship from Xunta de Galicia, Spanish Government to join Prof Heisler’s team in May 2014. In 2015, was awarded with a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie-Individual Fellowship under the HORIZON2020, the EU Research and Innovation programme. In the Heisler Lab, his scientific interest has been directed to decipher the neuronal wiring connecting brain with the brown adipose tissue.
