Miguel Hernandez

Special Seminar


Miguel graduated in Biology from the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain), followed by a Master’s in Microbiology, in 2013. During his PhD, he studied exocytosis and the dynamic organisation of the Golgi apparatus in the Peñalva lab, at the Biological Research Centre-Spanish Research Council, Madrid. In 2018, he moved to Stephen Royle’s lab at the University of Warwick for a short stay, expanding his knowledge on the role of multi-subunit complexes in membrane trafficking, particularly in the formation of clathrin coated vesicles.
In 2019, Miguel joined the lab of Michael Way at The Francis Crick Institute to study the roles and relationship of clathrin and septin filaments during vaccinia poxvirus infection, mainly using cryo-electron tomography and fluorescence microscopy. During his cryo-electron tomography investigations, Miguel expanded his focus and characterised the assembly process of vaccinia virions in the cytoplasm of infected cells, uncovering new insights into the organisation of the mature viral particle.
