Entre els anys 1989 i 1997 la meva dedicació professional a l'Hospital Vall d'Hebron va estar dirigida a les Cures Intensives Pediàtriques i des de 1998 em vaig especialitzar en Pneumologia Pediàtrica sent actualment el cap de Secció de les Unitats d'Al·lèrgia, Pneumologia Pediàtrica i Fibrosi Quística de l'Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron. Sóc responsable mèdic del programa de trasplantament pulmonar infantil d'aquest hospital que es va iniciar el 1998.
Des de l'any 2006 sóc professor associat i des de l'any 2014 professor titular-agregat de Pediatria de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
Les meves línies de recerca al VHIR inclouen la inflamació pulmonar en l'asma en lactants i en nens escolars, la funció pulmonar en nens, i l'estudi de les malalties respiratòries pediàtriques rares, com la discinèsia ciliar, la hipertensió pulmonar i les pneumopaties intersticials pediàtriques.

Research lines

Rare respiratory diseases: Primary ciliary dyskinesia, Paediatric interstitial lung diseases and paediatric pulmonary hypertension.

1.1 Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD): We are a referral centre for diagnosis of PCD and we have established a clinical and research collaboration network with other national and international PCD diagnostic centres. 

1.2 Paediatric interstitial lung diseases. We are leading the Spanish ISCIII registry for paediatric interstitial lung diseases and have started a project to characterize the incidence and the molecular basis of these rare diseases in Spain. We have international collaborations in this field (chILD EU registry and an E-rare 3 funded clinical trial).

1.3 Paediatric pulmonary hypertension. We have an active collaboration with the Spanish Registry of Paediatric Pulmonary Hypertension (REHIPED) and are developing an intense epidemiologic research in this area.

Paediatric respiratory diseases.

The Paediatric Pulmonology and Cystic Fibrosis Unit is a Spanish referral center for paediatric lung transplantation and pulmonary hypertension and a Catalonia referral center for children with cystic fibrosis, including the neonatal screening program. The main lines of research include the study of inflammation and bronchial hyperresponsiveness in asthma in infants and older children, the determination of reference values for spirometry in children and the study of lung function in children with sequelae of neonatal respiratory disease (bronchopulmonary dysplasia). The Unit has established a new line of study of ciliary motility and ultrastructure in primary ciliary dyskinesia to allow further study of this rare disease.
