Doctorate in Food Science and Technology from Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (2010) and currently researcher at the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA-CSIC) with the support of a Ramón y Cajal contract (2016).
As a posdoctoral researcher, Dr. Mora enjoyed a research fellow at the Universidad Politécnica of Valencia, and later a posdoctoral stay in Teagasc in Dublin (Ireland), and in Royal Holloway University of London (Egham, UK) as a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow. She has been involved in the European projects BACCHUS, related to bioactive peptides on cardiovascular health in humans, and HIGHVALFOOD project, about the application of modern proteomic methodologies in traditional meat products, as well as five national, and two regional projects.
Regarding the scientific production, Dr. Mora has published more than 80 articles in SCI-indexed scientific journals, most of them included in the first quartile and as first or second author, 9 book chapters published by international editorials, and 45 contributions in congresses and workshops including 4 as invited speaker and 5 oral communications.
In summary, main topics of her current research lines are (i) the identification of naturally generated bioactive peptides from meat-derived and meat by-products, (ii) the use of peptides as biomarkers in the quality and safety control of traditional meat products, and (iii) the characterization of posttranslational modifications in meat proteins and their impact on human health.
