It was after obtaining my Grant to collaborate in University Departments in 2007 at the Pharmacology Department, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Valencia, that I began undergraduate research in the laboratory. Within this year I started introductory research about the effect of natural products on protein carbonylation, which was continued the following year and gave title to my dissertation within the Master’s Degree in Research and Rational Use of Medicines. From my efforts to continue my career and having obtained my Category C title, authorizing me to direct and/or design animal experiments, I was accepted as predoctoral researcher on a research project about synthesis and target identification of bioactive natural products in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, which was carried out at the Pharmacology Department. As a result of my graduate research work, I served as lead author on a number of publications as well as being given the opportunity to present my research findings in the form of poster presentations and oral communications in various National and International Congresses about Pharmacology. In addition, I was awarded "Incentive for the elaboration and defense of the doctoral thesis in Valencian language" by the Language Policy Service of the University of Valencia.
With regard to my professional career, it was in 2007 when I started to work in a Pharmacy, which was a richly fulfilling experience that I have been combining over the years with my studies, resulting in more than four years professional work in that field. In 2013, and every year since then, I have been awarded a scholarship as Tutor Professor at the Affiliated Centre in Valencia of the National Distance Education University, where I teach both classroom and by distance Chemistry lessons for BsC degree majors as well as the University Access course for people over 25 years old. Within the last year, I have joined the workforce of CEU as University Professor where I teach practical lessons of Pharmacology for BsC students in the Medicine and Veterinary degree programmes.
