Marisa Castro Cerdeda (Lugo 1955), is a member of a saga of healers, until the age of 25 she was a farmer like her parents. She was lucky enough to go to university, and she let it pass through her.
She is a mycologist, with a doctorate in biological sciences with a work related to mushrooms, and for more than 30 years she was a professor at the University of Vigo, where she taught botany and directed almost a dozen doctoral theses.
