Marta is a Spanish biologist and a student of the IMBRSea (International Master of Science in Marine Biological Resources) ERASMUS programme. Having started her career in chemical oceanography, she modified her research line towards fish reproduction, having worked at the Institute of Marine Sciences - National Research Council (ICM-CSIC) in the group of Physiology and Fish genomics, fish farming applications, studing the factors that regulate sexual differentiation in zebrafish (Danio rerio). She has also been in the Marine Research Institute - National Research Council (IIM-CSIC) in the Fisheries Ecology Group doing gonadal histology work for unusual species in waters of the subtropical eastern Atlantic.
During her master's degree, she has toured different European universities and research institutes, such as the University of the Algarve (UAlg) and Aquagroup - CCMAR (Portugal), the PiE-UPV/EHU research station (Plentzia Marine Station - University of the Basque Country) (Spain), The Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences - Tjärnö (University of Gothenburg) (Sweeden) and the University of Bergen (UiB) (Norway). She is developing her master's thesis in Gemmell lab, focusing on the transcriptional and histological changes during the transformation of an ovary to a testis in cultured in vitro gonadal explants of the New Zealand spotty (Notolabrus celidotus).
