My first contact in the HIV research fields took placed at the Carlos III Hospital (Madrid, Spain) in 1996. In this field I have conducted various research projects on the studies of HIV co-infection along with hepatitis viruses (HCV and HBV). In 2003 I get a doctoral degree in this area. From this date, I have been working as a senior researcher at the Immunopathology Unit of AIDS on development and applicability of techniques based on the generation of recombinant virus for determination of viral tropism, replicative capacity and phenotypic resistance. In 2008 I became an official staff in this institution that has allowed me to continue my scientific career. Currently my main research objective relies on the investigation of the viral envelope and the application of new technologies for viral tropism studies.
