Alberto del Río Espínola, PhD

Genetics & Toxicology expert (PhD, DABT, ERT)

Basel, Basel

Biochemist and biotechnologist by training, I'm a creative and resourceful toxicologist applying pharmacogenetics and gene engineering technology to understand the mechanisms of toxicity (in vitro and in vivo) so research teams can move their drug development projects forward.

To date, my research subjects have been focused on toxicology, pharmacogenetics and neuroscience. My goal is achieving personalized medicine, where we use every patient's genome information to give them the best treatment.

Besides, I participate as toxicologist in drug development projects from all therapeutic areas (neuroscience, immunology, cardiovascular, oncology,...), particularly specialized in Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP).
