Marta Pintó-Marijuan received a BSc in Biology and a Ph.D. from the University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2003 and 2009, respectively. She performed several research stays in both national and international research centers: National Research Council in Spain (CSIC), University of the Basque Country (UPV; Bilbao), Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica (ITQB – Universidade Nova de Lisboa; UNL), Institute of agro-environmental and forest biology (IBAF-CNR, Montelibretti, IT), Centre d’Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive (CEFE-CNRS, Montpellier, FR), Instituto Superior de Agronomia (Lisbon, PT), Universidade de Aveiro (PT) and University of California-Berkeley (UC Berkeley, USA). Moreover, she collaborated with several private companies: Syngenta España SAU (Madrid, SP), Biovert SA (Lleida, SP), Bioiberica SA (Barcelona, SP) and Altri Gestão florestal (Olho Marinho, PT). With a background on plant ecophysiology, mainly related to the mechanisms of Mediterranean forest and model species to cope with abiotic stresses or climate change conditions, Dr. Pintó-Marijuan was incorporated to the Prof. Munné-Bosch research group in January 2013. Since then, she has been responsible to develop a new research line to understand the physiological and biochemical traits of native vs invasive species. Our research interests focus on the importance of the role of the antioxidant molecules (tocopherols, ascorbic acid, and carotenoids) and the photoprotection mechanisms of these species to adapt to the Mediterranean conditions.
