Dr. Irene Cervelló, of the IVI Foundation and Dr. José Bellver of IVI Valencia, have been overseeing her progress over the past three years. A period that allowed Dr. López to validate her work where she demonstrated the existence of stem cells in the endometrium and investigated the possible involvement of the bone marrow in the regeneration of this tissue. Her work has allowed her to publish several original and review articles in leading journals in the area of reproduction, as well as presenting the results of her research in key international conferences as oral presentations and posters (SRI 2017 and 2018).
According to Dr. Nuria López; "one may have an idea about the scientific commitment and resources at IVI and its Foundation. However, until one gets to work alongside the brilliant group investigators and trainees, it is hard to fully appreciate the magnitude of this organization. It has been fascinating for me to be able to develop my doctoral thesis within the IVI Foundation. I have worked with a tremendously bright, professional and kind group of researchers. Thanks to this work, I have been given the chance to realize a project that is quite relevant and I have learnt a great deal. "
On July 24th, Dr. Nuria López presented her doctoral thesis in Valencia, before a jury composed of doctors including Juan Antonio García-Velasco, Xavier Santamaría and Carmen Escobedo-Lucea, who not only have given her thesis their approval but also, due to its specific merits, have suggested that it be given the distinction of “cum laude”.
