Marta Casquero-Veiga, PhD, is a neurobiologist with 10 years of experience in molecular neuroimaging in neurological and psychiatric disorders. She earned her degrees from the Complutense University of Madrid: a bachelor of science in biology (2014); a master of science in biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedicine (2015); and a PhD in biomedical research (2021), for which she received the PhD Thesis Outstanding Award.

Dr. Casquero-Veiga developed her PhD in the Medical Imaging Laboratory of Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón, focusing on the evaluation of deep brain stimulation and pharmacological treatments in animal models of schizophrenia and addiction, by means of neuroimaging. She completed a predoctoral position in the Experimental Psychiatry group of Charité–Universitätsmedizin in Berlin, where she deepened her training in neurostimulation and behavioral neuroscience. 

In 2021, Dr. Casquero-Veiga joined Dr. Marta Cortes-Canteli's lab at the Jiménez Díaz Foundation Health Research Institute in Madrid as a postdoctoral researcher, where she is developing a research line on the evaluation of neuroimaging biomarkers to detect the procoagulant state in Alzheimer's disease. Altogether, Dr. Casquero-Veiga has participated in nine competitive research projects and authored 16 scientific publications and almost 60 communications in national and international congresses. Her early career focused on identifying neuroimaging biomarkers of neuropsychiatric disorders with a translational perspective and a clear aim: ""imaging" to heal.
