I studied medicine at the UAB before becoming a doctor at the Vall d'Hebron Hospital. I then took part in a training residency in pulmonology, also at our hospital. From that point I started to develop the Lung Transplant Programme at the Vall d’Hebron with the guidance and support of Dr Ferran Morell. The Lung Transplant Programme at the Vall d’Hebron was the first to be developed in Spain and is currently a centre of reference in the country. The programme helps 10 million people and is well-known at an international level. Until now I was the medical coordinator for the programme. We have also carried out very important activity in the field of pulmonary vascular disease and cystic lung diseases. Vall d’Hebron is recognised by CatSalut as one of two expert centres in pulmonary hypertension. We are also an international LAM Clinic, recognised by the LAM Foundation in the USA. My teaching experience includes pre-degree training as an associate professor of medicine. I have developed multiple postgraduate training activities, with courses in transplantation and also pulmonary diseases at an advanced stage and pulmonary vascular disease. Finally, my research activity has focused on this field, with numerous publications in the most prestigious journals in this speciality, obtaining competitive funding and directing a small research group at the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR).

Research lines

Lung transplantation and pulmonary hypertension.

123 The Group performed the first successful lung transplantation in Spain. Currently, it is one of the hospitals where the largest number of lung transplants are carried out annually, which places it among the leading centers in Europe and the world for this activity.
