Elisa Matas Rico

Postdoctoral Fellow

Personal details


I received my PhD from the University of Málaga (Spain),  where I characterized the neurophysiological abnormalities in LPA1 receptor knockout mice. Since 2010, I am working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Moolenaar lab at the NKI.

My project focuses on the role of a transmembrane exo-phosphodiesterase, termed GDE2, in the morphological differentiation of neuroblastoma cells. We discovered that GDE2 expression leads to altered neuronal morphology and attenuates LPA signaling. My goal is to elucidate how GDE2 expression intersects with LPA signaling to promote neuroblastoma differentiation.
