Help us confirm that you're an expert
Born in Madrid, I focused my education in Biological Sciences. I started working as an intern even before I graduated from college, dedicating over 20 years to research that led me to ground-breaking discoveries in both plant and human virology and to 15 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals (Fig 1). I have lived in Europe and the US and collaborated with people around the world in several multidisciplinary projects. Together with my extensive research experience I have business development, strategy, operations, project management, finance, marketing, human resources, entrepreneurship, technology transfer, IP protection, project valuation and legal issues training. In the recent years I have gained broad hands-on experience in business management and financing, drug development, regulatory approval, project preparation, consortium formation and project management. I have also been selected as both external expert and innovation expert to evaluate projects for the European Commission. I am as well a proficient scientific writer. I collaborate with Apadrina la ciencia and volunteer as a “cienciaterapeuta” for Cienciaterapia.
