I studied Medicine at the University of Barcelona (UB) from 2000 - 2008 and then went on to specialise in Paediatrics at Sant Joan de Deu (SJD) Barcelona Children’s Hospital from 2008 - 2012. During my third year of residency I joined the Paediatric Infectious Diseases Section at the same hospital, with doctors Fortuny and Noguera. I then began to study for my PhD in Medicine, which I completed in October 2015 with the presentation of my thesis on “Kidney function in paediatric patients with HIV. Study of new biomarkers and their possible relationship with inflammatory markers of infection”.
In 2015 I had the opportunity to do a Master’s in Paediatric Infectious Diseases and Primary Immunodeficiency at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Hospital Vall d’Hebrón. This finally allowed me to join the Allergy and Clinical Immunology Department as a consultant in October 2015, and that is where I currently practice, both looking after patients and conducting research.
