Carolina studied Biology at the Complutense University of Madrid. Once she finished her degree, she did an internship at the Center for Biological Research where she analyzed the functionality of fluorescent detection vectors in lactic acid bacteria. On her Degree Thesis at the Department of Microbiology of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos, she performed an intestinal microbiota analysis in an experimental model of multiple sclerosis.
Later, she did a Master's Degree in Microbiology and Parasitology at the Complutense University of Madrid. She did her Master's Thesis at the UCM Faculty of Veterinary Medicine where she designed and built avirulent Vibrio mutants chlorea and studied its genetic structures known as integrons.
Through the Youth Guarantee call promoted by the Community of Madrid, she joins our Service as part of Dr. Coque's EcoEvoBioma group to work for the next two years on the typification of bacterial subspecies most prevalent resistance in ICUs, as well as her thesis on how the interactions of microorganisms in different communities can affect the survival and transmission of resistance.
