Dr Rocío Acuña Hidalgo

Molecular Genetics

Rocío Acuña Hidalgo, Ph.D. is a medical doctor and human geneticist based in Berlin, Germany. Her expertise lies in bringing together Next Generation Sequencing (such as exome sequencing) and molecular biology to unravel the molecular mechanisms of mutations that lead to human disease. Rocío completed her Ph.D. at Radboud University Medical Center, where she studied the molecular effects of SETBP1 mutations in Schinzel-Giedion syndrome using a combination of in silico and in vitro models. She did postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, working on novel technologies to improve the diagnosis of patients with genetic disorders. She then co-founded Nostos Genomics, a company combining software and molecular biology approaches to improve the diagnosis of patients with genetic diseases. She currently serves as the Chief Technological Officer at Nostos Genomics.
