Yolanda Peña Lopez
I earned my Medical Degree with Honors from the University of Barcelona (2000) receiving the Extraordinary Degree Award and the Professor Romero Prize for the highest score on the national medical examination test. Following residency in Pediatrics at the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital (2005), I combined my fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at the same hospital with also being a member of the Catalan Aereal and Ambulance Transport Team of 2005 to 2008. 
Over these years I have participated in nurse and medical training in Basic & Advanced Life Support and Renal Replacement Therapy. I also have lectured Postgraduate and Master’s Degrees. I have textbook contributions in pediatric critical transport and  renal replacement therapy . I am also an active member of the Spanish Pediatric Critical Care Society Infectious Diseases Workgroup and I am part of the team running the Health-Care  Infection Control and Prevention in critically ill children in Catalonia (VINCat). In 2014 I joined the Clinical Research/Innovation in Pneumonia & Sepsis Group at Vall d’Hebron Institute of Research and I completed my PhD about respiratory infections in mechanically ventilated children and ventilator-associated events. Other research interest include acute kidney injury and continous renal replacement, burn and immunocompromised critically ill children. Some of my work has been awarded from the Spanish Pediatric Cardiology Society and the Argentine Society of Intensive Therapy.
