The researcher Alfredo García was trained as a Pediatrician at the Children's Hospital of La Paz in Madrid. Subsequently, he was trained in Neonatal Neurology, in the Department of Neurology of Children's Hospital of San Luis, University of Washington. In 1990, he obtained his PhD from the Autonomous University of Madrid and began working as a Neonatologist at the La Paz University Hospital in Madrid.

He has been an associate professor of pediatrics at the Autonomous University of Madrid and is currently an associate professor at the University of Barcelona. In addition, he is an honorary professor at the Universidad de Concepción, Chile, and an honorary member of the Ibero-American Society of Neonatology (SIBEN).

Between 1996 and 1999 he served as Head of the Neonatology Service of the Mother-Child Hospital of Gran Canaria. After returning to the HULP in Madrid, he focused all his research activity in neonatal neurology.

In 2009, he joined the Neonatology Service of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital and in 2016 he started to work concomitantly in the Genetics Service of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital. His research has focused during the last 20 years in the study of diagnostic-prognostic biomarkers of acquired brain damage in the perinatal and neonatal period. He currently directs the Neonatal Brain research group within the Neurosciences line of the Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute and chairs the NeNe Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote the development of neonatal neurology.

His scientific activity has been reflected in the publication of more than 100 articles registered in Pubmed.
