Thank you for paying a visit to my website! I am Iñaki Ruiz-Trillo, leader of the Multicellgenome Lab, which is part of the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra). Based in Barcelona, in a wonderful seafront building, my team and I are trying to unravel how animal multicellularity emerged from our common unicellular ancestor.

For this, we count with the help of our unicellular relatives, which are the perfect candidates to help us understand this transition. Please visit our lab’s website for further information on our research.
