Clara Julián obtained her Bsc in Biology from the University of Seville (US). During her bachelor she joined the University of Lisbon to study the role of fatty acid in extreme salinity resistance in invasive species, as Spartina patents. Then she developed her Bsc final project at the Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Photosynthesis (IBVF) in Irene Garcia’s group studying the role of cyanide-mediated signaling in plant response to fungal pathogens. After, she moved to Barcelona to study a Msc in Plant Biology, Genomics and Biotechnology at the Centre for research in Agriculture Genomics (CRAG), where she studied the role of antimicrobial peptides for crop protection and wrote her final project about the same topic. After this period, she moved to Germany to work in the field of agriculture and farming and participated writing the book “Traditional uses of plants in Anthroposophical Medicine”. Now, she is performing her PhD about holoparasitic plants and its effects in different plant species, as tomato and the Mediterranean shrub Cistus albidus.
