Paola Pacheco Fernández
Paola Pacheco has a degree in Biology (2021) and is currently a student of the Master in Human Genetics and Genomics at the University of Barcelona.
She has been trained in the field of human genetics and rare diseases, graduated as a Clinical Laboratory Technician at the Institut Bonanova, and carried out the cycle practices at the Biochemical Genetics-Rett Service of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona, under directed by Dr. Judith Armstrong. During this period she carried out her end-of-cycle work on "the work of a technician in a genetic laboratory."
Once the cycle was over, she began his Biology career at the University of Barcelona, where she was able to do the Mention in Molecular, Cellular and Systems Biology, doing the practicums and the final degree work in fine-tuning the sequencing and analysis of the mitochondrial genome. in pediatric patients at the Genomics Service of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona, under the direction of Dr. Dèlia Yubero and Dr. Judith Armstrong.
During her university studies, she began to work as a backup staff at the Hospital San Joan de Déu, in the group of Dr. Armstrong, and she was able to aspire to get a permanent position as a Senior Technician. Since then, in addition to training at the university, she has had the opportunity to attend different training sessions.
