Clara Ballesté-Delpierre

Associated Research Professor Resistènca antimicrobiana

Clara Ballesté is a Doctor in Biology from the University of Barcelona. She has a degree in Human Biology from the Pompeu Fabra University where she also completed a Master in Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industry.

Before starting the doctorate, she worked for two years as a researcher at the R&D centre of the pharmaceutical laboratories Ferrer Internacional, S.A. in new antibacterial discovery projects. Subsequently, and in this same context, she worked on the search for new antituberculosis drugs at the Biosafety 3 facilities of the Animal Health Research Centre (CreSA) in Bellaterra.

In 2011 she began as a PhD student at ISGlobal in the research group "Molecular basis of antibiotic resistance" led by Dr Jordi Vila. His research was focused on studying the relationship between resistance acquisition to the family of antibiotics called quinolones and their effect on virulence in Salmonella enterica.

She is currently Associated Research Professor at ISGlobal, where she leads and supervises research projects together with Dr. Vila. She is part of the CIBERINFEC group and since 2022 works at the Biomedical Diagnostic Center of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona.
