Dr. Mariana Tellechea
Mariana received a bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology and Molecular Biology from National University of La Plata (UNLP) Argentina. Following completion of the undergraduate studies, in 2017, she obtained a PhD in Exact and Biological Sciences from the same university. During the PhD, she worked under the supervision of Prof. Walter David Obregon and Dr. Sebastian Martin Tanco at the Plant Protein Research Center in the biochemical characterization of plant protease inhibitors. After that, Mariana moved to Barcelona (Spain) where she got a position as Research Technician at the Proteomics Laboratory (Spanish National Research Council, CSIC) located at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). During this postdoctoral period, she worked in Mass Spectrometry (MS) and MS-imaging. Mariana joined the Stolz laboratory on February 2019 where she focused on cell-based high-throughput screening. Besides her involvement in ongoing collaborative projects, Mariana analyses compounds for their impact on ER-phagy, Mito-phagy or general autophagy flux as part of the EUbOPEN consortium, SGC Frankfurt.
