Monika González obtained her PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at University of the Basque Country. Under the supervision of Dr. Antonio Gómez Muñoz her research was focused on the mechanisms by which bioactive phospholipids modulate cell signalling. Specifically, she was interested in the role of the Ceramide 1 phosphate in processes such as cell survival, migration or inflammation.

After receiving her PhD (2006), she joined Dr. Concetta DiRusso lab at Albany Research Center (Albany, NY), where she studied the impact of different fatty acids from the diet in liver metabolism.

Since 2008 she has been working at CICbioGUNE. First as a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Dr. Rosa Barrio at the former Gene Silencing Platform, where she gained experience in high-throughput processes and more recently (2016) as part of the Genome Analysis Platform where she works as a wet lab platform specialist.
