Desiree Henares Bonilla
Desirée Henares Bonilla graduated in Biomedical Sciences in 2015 from the University of Barcelona. In 2017, she studied the speciality of Clinical Microbiology of the Master of Clinical Research offered by the University of Barcelona and completed a training stay in the Microbiology service of the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona.
She is currently the recipient of a competitive scholarship from the Carlos III Health Institute (PFIS) to pursue doctoral studies in the line of Pathophysiology of Pediatric Diseases of the Translational Medicine and Research Program of the University of Barcelona. Her doctoral thesis focuses on the study of the microbiota of the upper respiratory tract as a protective or risk factor for the development of respiratory infections.
During her second year of doctoral thesis, she completed a research stay at Teagasc Food Reasearch Center (Ireland), where she acquired training in the bioinformatic and biostatistical analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequencing data that allows characterizing the bacterial microbiota.
