Leyre Brizuela Madrid has realised a license in Biologie and a Master degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Basque country university (Lejona, Spain) from 1996 until 2001. She has obtained her PhD in september 2006 in the “Hormonal regulation” lab directed by Pr Antonio Gomez Munoz, at Science and Technology faculty from Basque country university. Afterwards, she joined “Sphingolipid&cancer” laboratory directed by Dr Olivier Cuvillier at the Pharmacology and Structural biology institute (IPBS CNRS UMR 5089) at Toulouse as a junior postdoc. She was recruited as an assistant professor in CNU 64 section (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) en September of 2013 at Claude Bernard Lyon 1 university. She recently obtained her HDR (habilitation à diriger la recherche) en june 2022. She has been recently promoted to associate professor.
Leyre Brizuela Madrid is interested in the role of sphingolipid and phospholipid metabolism in different pathologies concerned by a pathological mineralization, as prostate cancer-derived bone metastasis, chronic kidney disease-derived vascular calcification and spondylarthrites. Leyre Brizuela Madrid research projects have a translational approach with in vitro, in cellulo, in vivo models and patients’ samples analyses.
