 Naroa Lopez-Herguedas 

Naroa has started as a postdoctoral guest researcher in the Department of Cellular Toxicology in February 2024. In January 2024, she was awarded with a grant funded by the Basque Government to expand her postdoctoral research in collaboration with the IBeA Research Group of the University of the Basque Country and our department. She will carry out her research integrating effect-based and analytical methodologies for the risk assessment of emerging pollutants in the environment-food-human continuum.

During her PhD at the University of the Basque Country, in the field of environmental contamination and toxicology, she evaluated the presence and potential impact of contaminants of emerging concern in aqueous ecosystems using different analytical techniques such as liquid chromatography coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) as well as working with different bioassays to identify cause-effect relationships following an effect-directed analysis strategy.
