Professor Tenure Track

Dr. Tornero is an experienced researcher in stem cell field. His projects have been focused in the generation of cortical neurons from human iPSCs for cell therapy and disease modelling, evidenced in an extensive scientific production. After 8 years conducting research at the prestigious Stem Cell Center at Lund University, he has created his own laboratory within the environment of the Faculty of Medicine, where he is supervising his second PhD student. He also belongs to the Production and Validation Center of Advanced Therapies and the Institute of Neurosciences at University of Barcelona, and is involved in a number of important international collaborations.
