Cristina Rohena

Cristina Rohena holds a PhD in Cell and Structural Biology from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, where she specialized on cytoskeleton biology with a focus on cellular mechanisms of action of microtubule targeting agents in cancer. She then went on to do a postdoc at the University of California, San Diego where she studied the regulation of focal adhesion formation during cancer invasion. Cristina joined Leica Microsystems as an application specialist, widefield since 2019.
