Speaker M. Carolina Florian

M. Carolina Florian

Research Professor and Group Leader of the Stem Cell Aging Lab | Bellvitge Institute for Biomedical Research, (IDIBELL), Spain

Dr. Florian’s lab focuses on understanding cellular and molecular mechanisms of somatic stem cell aging, supporting the development of new therapeutic strategies to preserve the regenerative capacity of stem cells over time, to limit or prevent the development of age-related disorders and extend healthspan and lifespan. Dr. M. Carolina Florian received her PhD in 2008 from the University of Milan (Italy) where she trained in neuroendocrinology. Afterwards, she pursued her postdoctoral training on hematopoiesis and hematopoietic stem cell biology at the University of Ulm (Germany) (2009-2015). In 2016, Dr. Florian was awarded an Emmy Noether grant (DFG) to lead her independent research group. In 2018, she was appointed by the Program for the Clinical Translation of Regenerative Medicine in Catalunya (P-CMRC) and the Program of Regenerative Medicine at IDIBELL (Barcelona, Spain). In 2023, she became ICREA Research Professor (ICREA).
