Alberto Moreno

Team Leader

Alberto joined PhoreMost in March 2016 where he works in the R&D team. Alberto’s work consists on designing, planning and running live-cell phenotypic SITESEEKER® assays to identify new druggable sites in specific diseases. Alberto graduated from the Faculty of Science at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid where he obtained a PhD in Biochemistry.

The focus of his PhD was to characterize the functional implications of mutations in a family of tumour suppressors. He then joined the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee as a Postdoc, where he studied the cellular response to the inhibition of DNA replication. Alberto’s expertise in molecular biology and cancer research are a valuable skillset for PhoreMost in the process of identifying a new druggable space.

Alberto spends his spare time hiking, writing his blog and playing with his new baby.
