Borja Sesé

R&D Coordinator


Borja Sesé holds a degree in Biotechnology (2006) and Biochemistry (2007) by the Autonomous University of Barcelona. During 2007 he finished a Master on Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Barcelona. In 2008 Borja won a PhD fellowship from the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovacion to perform his thesis at the Centro de Medicina Regenerativa de Barcelona (CMR[B]) with Dra. María José Barrero. During his PhD he studied the histone related enzymes that regulate pluripotency and differentiation of human embryonic stem cells (The role of SMYD2 during human embryonic stem cells differentiation). In 2013 he obtained his PhD from the Biomedical department of the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona).

In 2014 Borja started to work at the Brigham Regenerative Medicine Center in Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA) as post-doc researcher with the Dr. Yick Fong team. During his stay he developed further his PhD thesis by studying transcription factors and genetic regulation mechanisms involved in the regulation of human embryonic stem cell pluripotency. He also studied animal models for regeneration after extremity amputation in Zebra Fish (danio rerio) and Axolotl (ambystoma mexicanum).

In 2017 he joined the Dr. Llull laboraotry team as R&D Coordinator. Currently, he works developing new techniques and medical devices in the field of regenerative medicine applications using regenerative adipose tissue cells.
