Purificación Lisón Párraga is an Associate Professor at the Universitat Politècnica de València, and her research has been mainly developed at the Institute of Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology (IBMCP). She studied Agronomic Engineering and she obtained her PhD in Biotechnology in 2003 for her work on the molecular and biochemical characterization of a wound-induced plant proteinase inhibitor. Then, she joined Professor Jonathan Jones’ lab (The Sainsbury Laboratory; Norwich, England), collaborating with Dr. Lionel Navarro in the study of the correlation between gibberellins and the plant defence response. After that stay, she has continued her research at the IBMCP, being currently involved in the identification of metabolites which differentially accumulate upon biotic stress, and the study of its function in the plant defence response.
Since 2001, she has participated in the teaching of different subjects including Plant-Pathogen interaction and Scientific communication (Master's degree in Plant Molecular Biotechnology), Integrated control of pests and diseases (Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering), Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (Biomedical Engineering Degree), Plant Molecular Biology (Agronomic Engineering Degree), Biomolecular Chemistry (Biotechnology Degree) or Principles of Biochemistry (Agronomic Engineering Degree).
