Silvia Tórtola
Senior Business Development Manager
Silvia graduated in Biology from the University of Barcelona, and holds a Master in Immunology and a Ph.D. in Biology from the same institution. From 1998 to early 2002, she was research fellow at the Fondation pour Recherches Médicales (University of Geneva, Switzerland), working on fundamental questions of gene regulation and cancer. In 2002, she moved to Germany to work as a scientist at the biotech start-up company Europroteome AG (of which she was also founder member), focused on the development of diagnostic and prognostic tools as well as patient-specific therapies for human epithelial cancers. Late in 2005, she moved back to Barcelona to initiate the technology transfer activities at CRG, where she is also a member of the Ethical Committee of Clinical Research.
