Hi, I’m Paula Mut-Arbona! A biology and neuroscience student. During my Bachelor, I studied at the University of Valencia (Spain) and the University of Sheffield (England), due to my Erasmus Fellowship. I worked with Carlos Lopez in the evolution of cerebral cortex for my final bachelor project in the University of Valencia. After finishing the master studies in Neuroscience in the Institute of Neurosciences CSIC-UMH Alicante (Spain) and the realization of the master final project in epigenetics and, mainly, intellectual disabilities in the Angel Barco’s group, I joined the Professor Sperlágh group at the IEM-HAS, Budapest.
Why are you doing a PhD?
Scientific research has its origins in a very fundamental human character – curiosity, and so, I am looking forward to any opportunity to quench my thirst of knowledge. PhD studies are a natural step for me, one I’m prepared to take and work tirelessly for, with both diligence and alacrity.
Researching in Neuroscience does explain passion, sadness, eagerness, behaviour and health. Neuroscience serves as a bridge between cultures and social and political compromises. I am willing to be a part of it and develop the entire opportunities that the discipline could provide us.
Travelling, Books, Cinema & TV series addicted.
