I am a gastroenterologist working in the Gastroenterology Department at Vall d'Hebron Hospital and principal investigator in the research group of Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Digestive Tract in the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute. My clinical and research activity is dedicated to gastrointestinal bleeding and functional digestive disorders.

I am a gastroenterologist at Vall d'Hebron Hospital, where I did my residency and also began my research training in the field of Neuroimmunogastroenterology.
Currently, my clinical activity in the Gastroenterology Department at Vall d'Hebron Hospital as an attending physician is focused in gastrointestinal bleeding. Because of my research activity, I am also attending patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders. My research as principal investigator in the Neuroimmunogastroenterology research line, integrated in the Physiology and Digestive Pathophysiology Research Group of Vall d'Hebron Institut Recerca, aims to identify the mechanisms involved in irritable bowel syndrome pathophysiology.

Among the genes described, there are some related to digestive system functions, which reinforces the biological entity of irritable bowel syndrome as a digestive disease.

The international study, in which Vall d'Hebron participated, monitored patients who were hospitalized for COVID-19 for 12 months and compared their gastrointestinal symptoms with another group of patients diagnosed with other medical pathologies.

Els estudis avançaran en els camps de les malalties digestives, el VIH, la fatiga crònica, les patologies cardíaques, l’hepatitis, la diabetis i l’oftalmologia.
