Marta Martín Flix is an Associate Professor at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), where she teaches Cell Biology in several degrees of the Biosciences Faculty and Origin and Cell Culture Techniques and Recurrence of Human Pathologies caused by Chromosome Alterations in the Reproduction Biology and Cytogenetics Master of the UAB. She is also the deputy coordinator of the Biology Degree. Her research interests relate to the impact of aging on the efficiency of the DNA repair pathways. She is a member of the Genome Integrity group at the Cell Biology Unit of the UAB leaded by Dr. Anna Genescà Garrigosa. The research group interests are those mechanisms involved in safeguarding genome stability, such as the correct functioning of the DNA repair pathways, maintenance of telomere length or achievement of balanced chromosome segregation. She currently co-directs two doctoral thesis, one that describes the age-associated defect in DNA repair in human mammary epithelial cells and another that aims to establish the relationship between DNA repair efficiency and epigenetic changes during aging.
