I hold a degree and a PhD in Biomedicine from the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona), and have more than 14 years of research experience in international leading institutes. Aside from my scientific career, I have ample practice in designing and realising large-scale projects, revising grants, and communicating science to a variety of target audiences.
My career began with a PhD in Biomedicine at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG, Barcelona) in the group of Luciano Di Croce, where I studied the molecular mechanisms of acute myeloid leukaemia. As a postdoctoral researcher, I explored new therapeutic possibilities for solid cancers at the Institute for Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) in Vienna, working in the multidisciplinary group of the institute’s director Josef Penninger, first as an EMBO and later as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow.
In the last years, I have channeled my research experience to focus on other aspects of science. I have acted as a grant writer and consultant for several H2020 proposals as well as for other national and international grants, and I have participated in numerous projects as a scientific writer of the Kids Corona platform (SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital) and the BCNatal Fetal Medicine Research Center. I am currently the project manager of INTERCEPT-MDS within the Buschbeck lab at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute.
