    Pons Torres, Maria del Carmen

    Pons Torres, Maria del Carmen

    City and country of origin:
    Alicante, Spain

    Educational background:

    • Degree in Medicine and Surgery. University Miguel Hernández (Alicante, Spain)

     

     

    Main scientific interests:

    • I would like to focus my research career towards achieving two objectives. Firstly, opening new horizons and helping to increment our knowledge in this field and secondly, pioneer new ways that will contribute to the development of medical curative processes. The way I propose to meet these two goals, and which I would base my research career on, is by developing a working model where laboratory research is closely related to clinical work. My aim is to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical practice. For example, use the experience acquired in clinical work to improve experimental design in basic research.

    Master project

    Futur plans and objectives
    My ultimate goal is to complete a Doctorate in Neuroscience in order to improve my own competence in such an interesting field.
