Past Experience

  • PhD Candidate Barcelona, Spain
    September 2011 --- July 2015

    I have been working in the search of biomarkers of disease progression in familial amyloid polyneuropathies related to transthyretin. To this purpose, I have worked with human serum samples, being in charge of its reception, its organization in a database and its processing. I have been responsible of the development of a new methodology for the analysis of the samples through LC-MS analysis and high-resolution extracted ion chromatogram (HR-XIC) based quantification, leading to a publication in Journal of Proteomics. In addition, I am familiar with sample manipulation protocols for proteomic analysis as well as several mass spectrometry instruments, techniques and proteomic software for processing and data analysis, as detailed in my CV.

  • PhD Candidate Barcelona, Spain
    September 2011 --- July 2015

    My PhD thesis work has been performed between two different laboratories, the Biochemistry Laboratory at the IQS School of Engineering and the Proteomics Laboratory at the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO).

  • Supervisor of master thesis students Barcelona, Spain
    September 2011 --- August 2012

    Supervision of master students in the Biochemistry Laboratory of Dr. Antoni Planas (Bioengineering Department, IQS School of Engineering, The Ramon Llull University):

    - MSc Isadora Bassetto Kwiatkowski "E. coli recombinant production of Transthyretin, bioreactor scale"

    - MsC Ellen Yadira Cotrina Celis "Transthyretin-related amyloidosis: new families of fibrillogenesis inhibitors"

  • Master Thesis Barcelona, Spain
    September 2010 --- July 2011

    I performed the in vitro screening of a library of possible transthyretin fibrillogenesis inhibitors selected by a bioinformatic repurposing workflow, finding new potential candidates for TTR amyloidosis treatment. In addition, I acquired expertise in recombinant protein expression, purification and characterization and in in vitro HTS drug assays.

  • Research internship Granollers, Spain
    July 2008 --- August 2008

    As part of my 4 years Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology I performed a research internship in industry regarding the optimization of the production, extraction and purification of E. coli cell wall lipopolysaccharides in bioreactor culture.

  • Student Job Puigcerdà, Spain
    June 2003 --- June 2008

    Shop assistant and babysitting at stationery shop in my home town during weekends and holidays.
