Women in Cell Biology Early Career Medal Winner 2017: Victoria Sanz Moreno

Dr Sanz-Moreno is a group leader at the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.

Her group investigates molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of cancer cell migration and its connections to the transcriptional machinery. Victoria’s group has discovered how signalling pathways regulated by the cytoskeleton crosstalk with transcription factors to sustain cell migration during cancer metastatic dissemination.

During her PhD, Victoria focused on studying signalling pathways regulating cancer cell proliferation in Spain. She did her postdoctoral training at the Institute of Cancer Research (London), where she was supported by a Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie Intra European Fellowships. For her postdoctoral work, she received the European Association for Cancer Research 40th Anniversary Research Award. As an independent researcher, Victoria was awarded a Cancer Research UK Career Development Fellowship.
