In June 1993 I obtained my degree in Biology at the University of Barcelona (UB). I continued my studies in the Biochemistry Dept. and the Cell Biology Dept. of the Medical School (UB). In July 1998 I obtained my PhD and I moved to the laboratory of Prof RG Parton in the University of Queensland (Australia) as a NHMRC Research Officer. My professional independent research career started in 2002 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 I was incorporated as an ICREA Research Professor at the Cell Proliferation and Signalling team (IDIBAPS). In addition, I am Associated Professor in the Cell Biology Dept. of the Medical School (UB). Today I combine my research with teaching in biomedical sciences and in a PhD Programme for young investigators. www.celltrafficbcn.cat/Home.html.
