Gloria Mas Martín, a postdoctoral researcher at the CRG, has been awarded one of the grants that BBVA Foundation gives to researchers, innovators and creators as an acknowledgement of their careers and to give them the opportunity to develop highly innovative projects.
The BBVA Foundation has granted 56 scholarships, selected from more than 1,664 applicants, involving awards of up to 40,000 euros each for a period of between 6 and 12 months. According to BBVA selection criteria these people are key representatives in Spain for promoting science and culture and their future development.
This is the case of Gloria Mas Martín, a postdoctoral researcher working at the CRG in the Epigenetic Events in Cancer lab directed by Dr. Luciano Di Croce, an ICREA Research Professor. According to Mas Martín, the grant means a boost for her research: “I am at the end of my postdoctoral period and I need about a year’s more work. This scholarship will enable me to publish what I still have to do in order to be competitive, so I can establish myself as an independent researcher”.
