Diego López León received his Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Berne in 2013. In his Master thesis, he focused on bone marrow stromal cells and their role in CML in the lab of Prof. Adrian Ochsenbein at the DKF/ Inselspital Berne. After that, he worked as Research Assistant at the University of Fribourg, exploring the biology of cytotoxic T-cells and cytotoxic proteins against pathogenic bacteria. Diego joined the Corn lab as a technical expert in February 2021, working on HSCs gene editing. His research interests include gene editing on monogenic diseases, as well as the potential use of CRISPR/Cas9 system to treat cancer.
