We analyze regularity estimates for solutions to nonlocal space time equations driven by fractional powers of parabolic operators in divergence form. These equations are fundamental in semi-permeable membrane problems, biological invasion models and they also appear as generalized Master equations. We develop a parabolic method of semigroups that allows us to prove a local extension problem characterization for these nonlocal problems. As a consequence, we obtain interior and boundary Harnack inequalities and sharp interior and global parabolic Schauder estimates for solutions. For the latter, we also prove a characterization of the correct intermediate parabolic Hölder spaces in the spirit of Sergio Campanato.
