About you (please use English):
I obtained a PhD in Biology in 1994. I have an extensive experience in biomedical research gained in different European countries (UK, Sweden, Germany, and Spain). In 2000, I started a new path in my career taking responsibilities related to science management in several research centres Since June 2002, I work at the Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC), as Science Management Director. Main tasks: • Coordination and management of the Centre’s Training Programmes: 15 programmes covering all levels from senior high school students to postdoctoral researchers and other professionals. • Coordination of activities for researchers’ career development: evaluation, selection, training and promotion. • Establishment of national and international strategic alliances (research and training agreements, Centre’s representative in meetings, etc.). • Management and supervision of biomedical research projects funded by the CNIC. • Organization of scientific dissemination activities: Centre’s seminar series, international conferences, training workshops, etc. • Preparation of scientific dissemination material: annual scientific report, leaflets, webpage, etc. • Support and advice to the Managing Director in scientific-related activities. • CNIC’s Management Board Member. Related to gender issues, I am a member of the recently established Equality-Gender Committee at the CNIC and associated to the Spanish Association of Women in Science and Technology (AMIT, Asociación de Mujeres Investigadoras y Tecnólogas).
