What is E-Visibility?

The e-visibility program help ECUSA members to bring attention to their work and career. We work with scientists and other science professionals to identify articles, projects, publications or patents that can spark the general public interest, especially in United States and Spain. E-Visibility also wants to encourage the recognition of the ECUSA members by its peers and the international scientists community.

He returned to Pamplona, where he obtained her PhD at the Center for Applied Medicina (CIMA) at the University of Navarra He moved to the USA in 2016 to study epigenetic mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies and immunotherapies in lung cancer as a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA. Since 2022, he has been based in San Diego and holds the position of Senior Scientist at Tyra Biosciences in San Diego, California, where he researches new targeted therapies for cancer and other diseases. Fernando joined ECUSA as a volunteer member in 2020. Since then he has held various positions as Co-Chair and Chair of Communications. Since the end of 2023, he has been directing the E-Visibility program, in which he and his colleagues nurture one of his passions, science communication and popularization.


Virginia del Solar

Responsible for “You Stay or You Go

Virginia, born in Asturias and holder of a degree in Chemistry from the Universidad de Oviedo, earned her doctorate in Chemistry from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2012, moving to Buffalo (New York, USA) few weeks later. She was Associate Postdoctoral Researcher at the State University of New York at Buffalo where she studied the involvement of lipids in different biological processes and the effect of synthetic glycosides on the inflammatory response. Subsequently, she worked as a Research Associate at Brooklyn College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City where her research focused on the distribution of gold antitumor complexes as antibody drug-conjugates (ADCs) or peptide nanoparticles. She is currently working on biomarker discovery as a scientist at Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult, a UK-based company that collaborates with universities and other companies in order to achieve safer, more effective, scalable and affordable cell and gene therapies.

Noemí is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Saint Louis University, Saint Louis, Missouri. Noemí focuses on understanding the mechanisms of how fat accumulates and distributes in the body to find therapeutic targets to treat metabolic disorders such as obesity, fatty liver disease, or cardiovascular disease. Noemí graduated in Pharmacy at the University of the Basque Country. She also completed a Master in Nutrition and Health followed by a Ph.D. in the Department of Pharmacy and Food Science at the same University. During her pre-doctoral stage, Noemí spent 6-months at the University of Stockholm, Sweden, to complete her international Ph.D. studies. Shortly after defending her thesis, Noemí moved to the US with a postdoctoral fellowship from the Basque Government. Noemí collaborates in the E-visibility program and ECUSA communication, increasing the dissemination of scientific projects made by Spanish scientists.

Antonio Cembellin Prieto was born in Ávila, Spain. At the age of 18, he came to the United States to study biotechnology at Indiana University thanks to an athletic scholarship. After his second year, he worked in Dr. Cheng Kao’s lab and together designed antimicrobial peptides to treat bacterial infections and received two patents together. Currently, Antonio is a third year PhD student in Immunology at University of California, Davis, in the laboratory of Dr. Nicole Baumgarth. Antonio studies the interaction between the immune and the nervous systems during the immune response to the influenza virus. Antonio is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of ECUSA News&Views, together with Dr. Fernando de Miguel, a project that focuses on bridging the gap between science and society. Antonio is the Vicepresident of ECUSA-California. Antonio es el fundador y director de “ECUSA News&Views”, un apartado de ECUSA que pretende llevar la ciencia a un público más amplio. He is the current VP of California Chapter in ECUSA.


David Meseguer

Collaborating Member

David is a Pharmacist from the University of Valencia (UV) and he has been interested in science from the very beginning, being part of research groups such as the Pharmacogenetics platform (IIS La Fe) where he learned about the implementation of this discipline in pediatric oncology, or Doreal laboratory where he studied the relationship between Mu-opioid receptor and Neuroimmunity. After finishing his studies, he moved to New Haven, Connecticut to start his scientific career as a Research Assistant in the Cellular and Molecular Physiology Department located at Yale School of Medicine. There, he advances in the understanding of how neuronal, immune and vascular networks coordinately control energy homeostasis, applying this knowledge to the study of illnesses like obesity. In the following years, he is planning to enroll a PhD program.
