Dr. Blanca Jimeno

I am an integrative biologist with broad experience in ecophysiology and behavioural ecology. My main research interest is developing interdisciplinary approaches to investigate physiological processes underlying organismal responses to environmental challenges. My research brings together endocrinology, metabolism physiology, behavioural ecology, and epigenetics, in free-living and captive birds.

NEWS & EVENTS

Great time and science during our symposium in Madrid
Oct 2022
New paper out!
August 2022

New paper out! Exciting collaboration with

Dr. Cedric Zimmer.

We propose that studying glucocorticoid receptors will provide us with valuable information on glucocorticoid function and dynamics, in contrast with focusing on absolute glucocorticoid values. Read it here!

Along with  Dr. Christina Bauch and Dr. Elisa Pérez-Badás, I organized a meeting on life history trade-offs & senescence patterns (29-30th September 2022). We had a great time at the Natural Sciences Museum in Madrid, with really interesting and high-level talks covering many approaches and perspectives. Around 40 people joined onsite, and 50+ followed the conference online. Thanks to the MNCN for hosting the event and helping with logistics, and to the Society of Experimental Biology and the Company of Biologists for funding the innitiative!

Latest Media & Outreach

Outreach talk in my hometown
December 2019

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to share some of my research in my hometown (Soria, Spain). The audience was highly welcoming and I got many interesting questions. Feeling grateful and hoping for this to be the first of many talks here!

This talk also attracted the interest of the local media and organizations (links in spanish):
