ALEJANDRO AGUILERA CASTREJON
Alejandro Aguilera obtained a B.Sc. in biology (2015) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, performing his thesis research at the Institute for Cellular Physiology working on reprogramming of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells into neurons. In 2016, he moved to Israel for his M.Sc and PhD. degree in Life Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science, under the supervision of Prof. Jacob Hanna. Since then, Alejandro has been focusing on devising platforms for in vitro growth of mammalian embryos, harnessing these new platforms for studying the mechanisms regulating early mouse embryogenesis.
