María Mata Campuzano obtained her Biology Degree from the University of León in 2006. She was a researcher at the University of León under the supervision of Dr. Paulino de Paz (Ph. D.) and Dr. Felipe Martínez-Pastor (Ph. D.) studying the improvement of systems for the preservation of ram semen.
She also collaborated in other research lines of the group (spermatology of companion, domestic and wild animals) and improves her skills and knowledge within different techniques (flow citometry, computer-assisted sperm analysis, scanning electron microscopy). She has several poster presentatios in international scientific meetings.
