Futureco Bioscience adds one more person to R & D, Sonia Martinez Servat, graduated in Biotechnology from the University of Lleida, Master in Advanced Microbiology from the University of Barcelona and PhD in process of completing her thesis in Molecular Genetics of Bacteria in the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
Sonia joins the team as Head of the Department of Microbiology of Futureco Bioscience. She has a wide research expertise focused on developing new strategies to solve sociosanitary problems. Although she has worked in a sector more focused on biomedicine, she has characterized strains at a molecular and functional level seeking targets for antibacterial drug design, something completely applicable to plant health. Its role will be able to contribute with their knowledge to the management of the microorganisms that are isolated, in order to select those of interest and application in plant health.
With Sonia the Department of R & D has already reached 45,45% of the total staff of the company, joining a multidisciplinary team. Happy, she says, "For me it is a challenge and a great career opportunity. I really want to learn and be able to contribute my knowledge. Besides, I appreciate very much to continue investigating here without having to go far from my people, I love it!"
