About Ernesto Llamas Pamanes

Ernesto obtained his Master's degree in Biochemistry Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He received his Ph.D. in Biotechnology at the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Center of Research of Agricultural Genomics (GRAG). In 2018, Ernesto was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship to study plant proteostasis mechanisms at the Cluster of Excellence - Cellular Stress Responses in Aging-Associated Diseases (CECAD) in Cologne.

Ernesto is a molecular biologist with ten years of experience in chloroplast metabolism and protein homeostasis. His multidisciplinary research uses human stem cells, neurons, Caenorhabditis elegans and Arabidopsis thaliana for the unveiling of new mechanisms to degrade or repair aggregated/damaged proteins to extend healthy aging, delay the development of neurodegenerative diseases and design the future varieties of stress-tolerant crops.
