David Sabater Martínez

My name’s David Sabater and I’m in possession of the PhD in Cell Biology. My doctoral thesis, as well as other tasks, were performed under the tutelage of Drs. Ricardo Pedro Casaroli-Marano and Manuel Reina del Pozo, in the environments of CELLTEC-UB and Advancell S.L. Since then, I've worked in various college and clinical centers, always involved in biological and biomedical research tasks.
