You will find me at


English, Spanish and Catalan

Since I graduated I have worked in the field of cytogenetics and FISH. I began specialising in the final year of my course, when I worked in the Department of Cell Biology, Physiology and Immunology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

As soon as I finished my Bachelor's degree, while doing my Master's, I started the Prenatal Genetics S.L. laboratory, as a founding partner, where I worked for 22 years. In 2014, I launched the Cytogenetics Department of the AMBAR (Análisis Médicas Barcelona) laboratory. In addition to my professional experience, I have carried out research and academic activities, attending congresses and seminars held by national and international associations of which I am a member.

Since 2019, I have been Head of Cytogenetics at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital Laboratory.
