Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia

Post-doctoral researcher

I am biochemist and PhD in human biology. Since 2008 I work as a researcher at the clinical neuroimmunology - Multiple Sclerosis Center of Catalonia (Cemcat) research group. My activity is based on the study of multiple sclerosis, mainly in the identification of molecular biomarkers associated to different aspects of the disease.


I graduated as a biochemist in 1999 from the University of Córdoba (Argentina). In 2005 I obtained a PhD in human biology from the University of Ulm (Germany) for my work in the DNA vaccine field. Afterwards, I carried out a 3-year postdoctoral stay at the Hertie Institut for Brain Research at the University of Tübingen (Germany) focused on the study of antigenic presentation in multiple sclerosis. In 2008 I joined the research group of the clinical neuroimmunology - Cemcat directed by Dr. Xavier Montalban where I have been working until now.

Since 2010 I have been working as principal investigator of several projects focused on the identification of new molecular biomarkers that allow the characterization of the different aspects of the disease, among which are included prognostic biomarkers in the initial phases of the disease, biomarkers of response to treatment, and biomarkers of disease activity.
