Bio


I received my PhD from UNED in 2014, and currently I am a visiting lecture at UC3M. My research interests cover areas like small animal imaging, infectious and inflammatory diseases. Summarizing my incipient scientific career in numbers, since 2008 I have worked on four FIS projects, two European projects, three projects of technology transfer and four projects of private funding, and I've been author or co-author of 7 articles ISI journals and 19 presentations at national and international conferences. Also, I've organized a National workshop in preclinical molecular imaging in colaboration with the UC3M, the IiSGM and the Neuroimaging Platform of CIBERSAM.
