Doctor by the Universidad de Oviedo with the thesis Utilidad de la cuantificación plasmática de neurosina en el diagnóstico diferencial de las demencias 2008. Supervised by Dr. Ana Suarez Diaz, Dr. Alfonso López Muñiz.

I am a neurologist (at Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Oviedo) and professor of neurology (at Oviedo University) with research experience in clinical and translational neuroscience (at Oviedo University and at Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria del Principado de Asturias). I am focused on neurodegenerative diseases, from neuropsychology to neuroimaging and from neurogenetics to phenotypes. In the last years, I am particularly interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration; and in studying brain clearance systems and the molecular dynamics between cells, the interstitial fluid, and the cerebrospinal fluid. I am also interested and in developing new systems for targeted drug delivery to the CNS.
