Carlos Munoz Minutti

I obtained my PhD from the University Complutense of Madrid at the lab of Cristina Casals. My PhD focus was to study how the alveolar niche regulates the activation of lung macrophages. Later, I joined the lab of Judi Allen and Dietmar Zaiss at The University of Edinburgh; where I studied the involvement of macrophages in the process of tissue regeneration in the context of nematode infections. Now I want to know how macrophages sense alterations in our tissues and whether this might be a useful way for the immune system to quantify the negative impact of inflammatory responses on our fitness.
