My career in Medicine started in 2001 when I graduated from Medical School. I did my 4 year
training in Internal Medicine in Castro Rendón Hospital (Neuquén, Patagonia) and then, moved to
the Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires where I did my Hepatology and Liver Transplantation training
(2005-2007). In September 2007 I moved to Barcelona to enter the BCLC at the University of
Barcelona as a pre-doctoral fellow. Upon completion of a Master in Liver Research and a Degree in
Statistics, I developed my Doctoral Thesis under the guidance of Professor Bruix. My area of interest
has been the development of prognostic models for patients with liver cancer and evaluation of
treatment options with special emphasis in systemic therapy. Additionally, I obtained a Degree in
Immuno-Oncology at the University of Navarra that has facilitated the opening of a new area of
research in immune modulation and cancer emergence after antiviral treatment.
During my career focused in clinical research in liver cancer I have authored 67 manuscripts ORCID
ID 0000-0002-5711-9534 with a total Impact Factor of 687.204 and an H-index=22. My current
research at the BCLC is funded by competitive grants and contracts where I am the Principal
Investigator and by grants and contracts where I am a main collaborator both at the national and
international level. At the same time, I am responsible for the coordination of the educational events
and short-term fellowship visits at the BCLC, while also being the mentor of four pre-doctoral
I regularly review manuscripts for the major Hepatology journals and have been member of the
Governing Board of the Spanish Association for the Study of the Liver and International Liver Cancer
Association. I am currently a member of the Governing Board of the European Association for the
Study of the Liver.
