Clinical biochemist

Expert in

Clinical biochemistry. Inborn errors of metabolism


English, Spanish, Catalan

Graduated in Biological Sciences from the Universidad de Granada in 2001 and PhD in Biology from the Universitat de Barcelona in 2006.

Since 2002 I've been part of the Metabolic Diseases Laboratory that is integrated into the Congenital Metabolic Diseases Unit of the SJD Barcelona Childrens Hospital. My first years (2002-2006) in the laboratory allowed me to develop new techniques for the analysis of biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid, the result of which was my doctoral thesis (June 2006). In June 2008 I became part of the SJD Barcelona Childrens Hospital indefinitely, taking care of the assistance and development of new methodologies in the laboratory of metabolic diseases.

Throughout the last few years I have been part of multiple research projects both as a collaborator and as the principal investigator.
