Assistant Physician in the Digestive Service at Vall d'Hebron Hospital, Crohn-Colitis Care Unit (UACC).

I studied Medicine at the University of Alcalá, conducting my undergraduate thesis on the utility of leukapheresis in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I specialized in Digestive System at this hospital, completing my training in 2021 and immediately beginning subspecialized training in Inflammatory Bowel Disease within the same department. I have been actively involved in research in the same field and have provided clinical care in monitoring patients with IBD. I have experience in monitoring biological treatments, applying statistical models to adjust anti-TNF therapies. Currently, I am pursuing a doctoral thesis in the field of pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenetics of patients treated with thiopurines and anti-TNF agents.

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.
