In his own words, "The sun didn't wash the nerd away." Antonio studied Biotechnology as an Undergraduate at the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona. Before graduating, he took a detour and stayed in Boston (USA); where he was privileged to visit Prof. Ali Khademhosseini tissue engineering's lab at Harvard, and remained as a visiting student at MIT. For his PhD, he joined Prof. Andrew Turberfield’s laboratory at the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford, where he have developed novel theranostic CRISPR tools and several nano delivery systems for nucleic acid-based therapies.
"Whenever I have time, I love to go to music shows, and spend as much time as I can with my friends. I run on coffee, and enjoy pizza, maybe too much."
