Dr Cordero-Llana’s research focuses on the processes underlying brain degeneration and the strategies of brain regeneration and repair. He is also a glia champion and determined to reduce the neuronal bias in neuroscience.
Dr Cordero-Llana graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Oviedo (Spain) in 2005. He then became a Fundesfor Scholar (a European Foundation for the Training and Development in Coal Mining Areas) which allowed him to move to the UK and obtain an MSc in Molecular Neuroscience at the University of Bristol in 2007. His research career started in the Stem Cells and Neuro-regeneration group working with human and rodent stem cells under the supervision of Prof Maeve Caldwell. He was then awarded a University of Bristol Scholarship to undertake a PhD investigating novel neurotrophic factors in neural stem cells and their application in neurodegenerative conditions. This work led to his first major funding - an Innovation Grant from Parkinson’s UK - to evaluate the efficacy of a new family of neurotrophic factors in preclinical models of Parkinson’s. In 2013, Dr Cordero-Llana joined the Molecular Neurodegeneration Group at the University of Oxford, where he worked towards the generation of novel animal models for the study of the molecular mechanisms that lead to motor neuron death in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In 2015 Dr Cordero-Llana returned to Bristol to set up his own research group and lecture in Stem Cell Biology as Co-Director of the MSc in Stem Cells and Regeneration. Dr Cordero-Llana has been Postgraduate Research Director since 2020 and Associate Professor in Stem Cell Biology since 2023 in the department of Translational Health Sciences at the Bristol Medical School
