Dr. Amancio Carnero

Head of Lab
Biomedical Institute of Seville/CSIC
Manuel Siurot sn, Campus HUVR

Brief Biography:

Amancio Carnero was awarded with his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at the Univesidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain, in 1994, for work on ras signal transduction pathway at the Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas (CSIC). He moved to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, USA, where he worked on strategies of gene isolation based on function in mammalian cells in D. Beach´s Group. Armed with a long term Postdoctoral Fellowship granted by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), the period 1997-2000 was also spent under the supervision D. Beach, as Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Child Health, London, UK. His research interests focused on the cell cycle, replicative senescense and cellular immortalisation. Carnero was to spend one further year in London based at the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research, as Senior Lecturer, before returning to Spain in 2001 to assume his position as Head of  the Assay Development Group, Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas (CNIO), Madrid. At the end of 2009, Amancio moved from Madrid to the Biomedical Institute of Seville (IBIS/CSIC) to lead the Molecular Biology of Cancer Lab.


Research interests:

Current research focuses on the identification of new genes involved in cancer, its characterization and traslation to clinic, and the identification and validation of new targets for anticancer drug discovery. The work involved Molecular and cellular biology, genetically ingeeniered mouse models, molecular pathology and traslational studies.
