    Curriculum

    Brief CV

    Ph.D. and Associate Teacher of the Physiology area of the Department of Fundamental Biology and Health Sciences, University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) as part time job. Its main work is done in the Research Unit of the Hospital Son Llątzer. The current research are summarized as: sleep physiology; study of biological rhythms; techniques of linear and nonlinear analysis of temporal series; Biochemical markers of oxidative stress and its regulation; Minimally invasive surgical techniques; studies on the growth plate; aquatic ecotoxicology. She holds the dual degree in Biology and Biochemistry and a PhD in the doctoral program of Basic Medical Sciences at the UIB. He has participated as an investigator in a total of 14 projects in different areas, and one subsidized by the government. Regularly participates in meetings and congresses of the SEBBM, SFRR, ERAS, EPOS, EFORT, SECF, among others, with 46 oral/poster presentations at the annual scientific meetings of these societies. He has made scientific contributions in the fields of Biochemistry and Physiology, the Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques, Child Trauma and Ecotoxicology with 24 published articles in international scientific journals of impact and five other scientific publications. He made 2 stays at other prestigious universities (Nijmegen, Netherlands; Tenerife, Spain). He has extensive experience in the study of serotonergic and cholinergic pharmacological effects on vigilance states of rats and pigeons (Tejada et al, Eur J Neurosci 2007; 2010 Neurosci and Behav Physiol, Behav Brain Res 2011); the status of oxidative stress associated with cholinergic drugs in animals (Tejada et al, 2006 and 2007 Brain Res Bull) and in health, particularly in surgical studies of minimally invasive (Noguera et al, 2013) and hemiepiphysiodesis (Sanpera Jr . et al, J Ped Orthop 2012; Raluy-Collado et al, Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2012). It has also demonstrated the utility of biomarkers for assessing oxidative stress associated with pollution and competition among species in marine organisms (Deudero et al, 2009 Mar Pollut Bull; Cabanella-Reboredo, M et al, 2010 Sci Mar; Sureda et al, 2011Aquatic Toxicol; Tejada et al, 2013 Mar Environ res). He also has experience in teaching at the university level (3 academic years) in grades in biology, chemistry, nursing and physiotherapy; although previously held various teaching collaborations in the areas of physiology and biology.
