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.
