I studied a BSc in Genetics. I have studied a lot of areas of genetics and biology, but for me the most interesting were human and medical genetics. That's why I did my internship student in PRBB studying some neurodegenerative human disorders. But what I really would love to do is to work with patients in genetic counselling. When I knew that exist an area in genetics where you can help the patient or the family, I wanted to work on it. I want to spend this year getting practice in genetic counselling in order to have more background in this field, and then I will try to study the degree of Medicine, to work someday in the human genetics area.
Getting Close to Parkinson: It was my bachelor's degree final project. It was a divulgation project whose aim was to make Parkinson's disease something closer to everybody. I have enjoyed a lot the experience to communicate science with non-scientific public, this is the reason why I am continuing this project even after my BSc has finished.
