Joan Villarroya Terrade
Joan Villarroya Terrade graduated in Biology 2005 from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and obtained his PhD in Biomedicine from the University of Barcelona in 2010, with subsequent obtaining of the extraordinary doctorate award.
Between 2014 and 2015 he completed a postdoctoral stay at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York where he studied the role of autophagy in the activity of brown and beige adipose tissue.
Since 2020 he has been a lecturer at the University of Barcelona and a member of the board of studies for the Biomedical Sciences degree at the Faculty of Biology. He is also a member of the governing council of the Institut de Biomedicina de la Universitat de Barcelona (IBUB).
Currently, within his group, he leads the research in the study of autophagy in the pathophysiology of adipose tissues, and its relationship with pathologies that involve metabolic dysfunctions in HIV patients with antiretroviral treatment.
