Berta Martí Fuster is a biomedical imaging researcher from Spain. She holds a bachelor’s of science in physics, and a master’s of science in biomedical engineering from the University of Barcelona. Berta earned a PhD in biomedical engineering from the same university in 2013. Her doctoral work was fully funded by a fellowship from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC). Her thesis, “Image processing of emission tomography studies in refractory epilepsy,” aimed to develop and assess FocusDET, a new clinical platform for pre-surgical evaluation of emission tomography studies in refractory epilepsy.
From 2008-2009, Berta was a research technician for the Virtual Physiological Human Toolkit Project at the Biomedical Imaging Group at CIBER-BBN, the Biomedical Research Networking center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine.
Berta hopes that her work as a research scientist will contribute to the strengthening of Madrid’s position as a center of biomedical research. She also looks forward to learning from and working with global leaders in the biomedical sector, and to working to address unmet clinical needs.
