working groups

ENS@T operates in four core Working Groups

ACC Working Group

Pheo/PPGL Working Group

Mercedes Robledo, PhD
Hereditary Endocrine Cancer, Group Leader
Human Cancer Genetics Programme
Spanish National Cancer Centre (CNIO)
C/ Melchor Fernández Almagro 3
Madrid, Spain


Mercedes Robledo is the head of the Hereditary Endocrine Cancer Group, in the Human Genetics Cancer Program at the Spanish National Cancer Center (CNIO), Madrid, Spain. Her Group is interested in identifying high and low genetic risk factors involved in pheochromocytoma and thyroid cancer susceptibility. To this end, we analyse tumour samples and look for differences between genomic features according to the different individual genetic backgrounds. Such comprehensive characterisation allows us, not only to define diagnostic and prognostic markers associated with primary mutations, but also to pinpoint specific altered pathways that can lead to the identification of future therapeutic targets.

Period in office: 2017-2020
