Borja Ibarra

Researcher

Borja Ibarra received his PhD. in Molecular Biology from Universidad Autónoma Madrid in 2001. He made the ‘leap’ to molecular biophysics as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Carlos Bustamante lab at UC Berkeley. Back in Spain in 2007, he applied single molecule manipulation methods as optical tweezers at the CNB-CSIC (Madrid) to study biological molecular motors at single molecule level. He joined the Nanobiosystems department at IMDEA Nanoscience in 2010, where he started the Molecular Motors Nanomanipulation Lab.

Rebeca Bocanegra

IMDEA Staff / Researcher

B.S. in Biochemistry, Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, 2011, Universidad Autónoma Madrid.
During her Ph.D. she studied intermolecular interactions in viral assembly and viral assembly inhibition using the mature HIV capsid as a model system.  As a postdoc, she worked in the National Center of Biotechnology to study the relation between protein structure, macromolecular interactions and physiological function of protein complexes. In March 2018, Rebeca joined our lab as a staff scientist.
