I obtained a BSc in Biology in 1996. I went on to obtain a PhD in Genetics in 2002, working on the genetic causes of deafness under the supervision of Dr.Estivill. I did a postdoctoral stay at Duke University's Center for Human Genetic, under the supervision of Dr. Pericak-Vance, working in the genetics of autistic disorder. Since then, I came back to Barcelona, where I have worked on new sources of genetic variation, such as CNVs and epigenetics. My current projects involve: - genetic susceptibility to Fibromyalgia; - identification of novel genes for Intellectual Disability; -identification of genetic factors determining outcome after Stroke; -Identification of genes for Mendelian disorders through exome sequencing; - CNV discovery from exome sequencing data; -Methylation changes in Alzheimer's disease
