My name is Beatriz Rodríguez Alonso and I am a postdoctoral researcher working at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF, USA). As a researcher within Rajkovic’s lab, I participate in different projects which approach the study of reproduction from the genomics perspective. My current position in basic research along with my experience as a clinical embryologist in the field of human reproduction gives me a unique perspective to understand the clinical needs and the current state of the knowledge in embryology. I aim to combine the strengths of my background directing my career towards the reproductive translational research field.
I obtained my PhD in Biology of Reproduction (Marie-Sklodowska Curie ITN, https://www.um.es/rep-biotech/) at University College Dublin (Ireland). This is a European Network created to train the new generation of excellent researchers in the Biology and Technology of Reproductive Health. My research aimed to improve our knowledge of embryo-maternal communication during the preimplantation stages of pregnancy. As a result of my PhD studies, I was selected as a finalist of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Awards 2018, an event organized by the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union which aims to identify the most promising researchers among those funded so far under the MSCA programme. My contribution to research is reflected in different publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Beatriz_Rodriguez-Alonso2). Moreover, I have presented my work at a variety of international conferences including the Spanish Association of Andrology (ASESA), the annual meeting of the International Embryo Technology Society (IETS), the meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE), and the meeting of the Association of Embryo Technology in Europe (AETE), at which I won the prestigious Student Competition in 2018.
