I have accumulated 13 years of experience in hematology-oncology, and stem cell development. I was trained in hematology-oncology at the University of Salamanca by Prof. Alberto Orfao and Prof. Jesus San Miguel. After my thesis dissertation, I was trained in the field of immunology for 4 years in the laboratory of Prof. Joaquim Madrenas at Robarts Research Institute, London, Ontario. After more than a year in the Department of experimental hematology and etiology of pediatric leukemias at Institute of Cancer Research in London (UK) led by Professor Mel Greaves, I returned to Spain in 2007.
