Luis obtained his MSc in biochemistry and molecular biology from University of Oviedo, Spain. He received his PhD at the same University with a Thesis on the ?Signal transduction pathways and phosphorylation processes involved in erg channels regulation by TRH.? He joined the Department of Developmental Neurobiology, King?s College London in 2014, since then Luis has been working on hereditary neurological disorders. Currently he is studying the interactome of alpha-2-chimaerin and how the mutations in the CHN1 gene affect these interactions and how is related with the causation of Duane Retraction Syndrome, a type of squint characterized by abnormal wiring of nerves controlling eye movements. He is currently carrying out proteomic assays to study interacting partners of alpha-2-chimaerin and characterizing the effect of the proteins interacting with chimaerin in the development of the zebra fish oculomotor system.
