Pedro Escoll received his B.Sc. in Biology from Universidad Autonoma de Madrid and obtained his Ph.D. in Immunology in the laboratory of Antonio de la Hera and Eva Sanz at Alcala University, Madrid, Spain, where he worked on TLR signaling and IL-1beta–Glucocorticoid receptor crosstalk.
In 2012, he joined the laboratory of Carmen Buchrieser at the Institut Pasteur Paris for post-doc training, and he investigated the influence of Legionella pneumophila infection over mitochondrial behavior.
Since 2018 he is permanent researcher at the BBI Unit, and his projects aim to understand how the immunometabolic interactions of human cells and intracellular bacteria impact infection.
