In June 1993, I obtained my degree in Biology at the University of Barcelona (UB). I continued my studies in the Biochemistry and the Cell Biology Departments of the Medical School (UB). In July 1998, I obtained my PhD and I moved to the laboratory of Professor Robert G Parton (IMB-UQ, Australia) as a NHMRC Research Officer. My independent research career started in 2001 when I was awarded a "Ramón y Cajal" grant from the Spanish Science and Technology Ministry. In November 2006, I obtained an I3 grant from the same ministry and in November 2007, as an ICREA Research Professor, I founded the Lipid Trafficking and Disease Team (IDIBAPS). This research has been recognized with mentions such as the "City of Barcelona" Award. Besides, I am Associated Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the Medical School (UB). I combine research with teaching Biology in the Medical and Pharmacy Schools (UB) and Biomedical Sciences in Grades and PhD Masters (UB and IDIBAPS).
