I have dedicated part of my professional career to the study of growth and puberty in children, especially in patients born with low birth weight. I work with national and international research groups in this area. Since 2007 I have been coordinating the Neuroendocrinology programme with specialised care of patients with pituitary disorders (growth hormone deficiency, hypopituitarism, pituitary adenomas) and paediatric endocrine tumours (thyroid, adrenal, ovarian nodules). I have tried to improve the quality of life of survivors of childhood cancer by performing protocolised monitoring of the after-effects they suffer. This is a pioneering project carried out in conjunction with the Oncology-Haematology team. In the personal sphere, my biggest pleasure is an endless afternoon on the beach back home with my children and friends.
