Professional Title: 
Acting Associate Professor
Unit: 
Molecular and Cell Biology
Bio: 
The de Alba lab studies the molecular and mechanistic bases of cellular processes essential to life from a biochemical and biophysics perspective. We focus on the regulation of inflammation and programmed cell death, with the aim of deciphering at the molecular level the origin of related conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, cancer, neurological and cardiovascular diseases.We apply the information gained from these studies to engineer artificial protein and protein materials with new biotechnological applications.Our studies require a variety of complementary techniques: high-resolution NMR, Native Electrospray Mass Spectrometry, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), confocal microscopy and optical tweezers.
