Dr. Laura Saldaña obtained her PhD degree in Chemistry from the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) in 2005. During her PhD studies, she spent 6 months at the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Bologna (Italy). She worked as postdoctoral researcher at the National Center for Metallurgical Research (CSIC), the Department of Medical Specialties of the University of Alcalá and the Biomedical Research Networking Center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN). In 2012, she joined the University Hospital La Paz-IdiPaz in Madrid as Research Scientist. Her research interests are focused on the influence of novel biomaterials developed for bone repair and regeneration on the behavior of osteoblast-lineage cells as well as on the cross-talk between cells relevant for bone biology.
