I attained a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 2016. Following this, I worked as a research assistant for 2 years in the Carding group studying microvesicle drug delivery technology.
Due to my increased interest in this technology I decided to embark on a PhD, a collaborative project between the Quadram Institute and the University of Liverpool. This gives me an excellent opportunity to further my research on the use of outer membrane vesicles (OMV) as a vaccine delivery system. My aim is to generate novel vaccine formulations suitable for intranasal delivery against emerging and re-emerging diseases such as seasonal influenza.
