The news of award was received with satisfaction, as well as his colleague Iñigo Olalde. The latter is doing his second year of his doctoral thesis in Barcelona, specifically in the laboratory of paleogenomics directed by Professor Carles Lalueza, at high school of Evolutionary Biology. He first studied the Master's Degree of Genetics Advanced at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

"It was Professor Lalueza who offered me, after my internship at Master's Degree, to stay and do my doctoral thesis at his group", he emphasizes. The research of this researcher from Vitoria focuses on the sequencing of the genome of prehistoric humans, and he has already published his first article in the journal Nature.
