Undergraduate Programme in Biotechnology

Elisabet Martí studied the Undergraduate Programme in Biotechnology at IQS. During the fourth year she had the opportunity to do an exchange abroad in the United States and to do her internship in Delft, in the Netherlands.

You can read her complete experience below:

 

The fourth year was one of the best years of my life: I did an academic exchange in the United States and once I returned I decided to do the Final Project in TU Delft, in the Netherlands.

I was in the Netherlands for 5 months, during which I participated in a university post-doctorate student's research project. The project is focused on the biocatalysis of dehydrogenase and laccase enzymes whose purpose was to be able to sustainably achieve a commonly used pharmaceutical ingredient: ursodeoxycholic acid.

They treated me really well there and helped me all the time, although I already felt well-prepared thanks to all the hours of practical work that we did in IQS. I was also able to apply a lot of the knowledge I acquired during my studies in the internship, including laboratory methodologies (protocol and analysis), enzymatic reactions, the knowledge of cellular biology and pharmacology. Living abroad for a time is something I recommend 100%. I feel that I have changed a lot because living alone makes you wiser, makes you more mature and grow rapidly. It opens your eyes and makes you realise the number of people still left to know, the places to discover and the languages to learn.

At a professional level, I was really interested in the competitive nature abroad. People are well-prepared and they're at a high level, but this also motivates you do your best and give it your all."

Elisabet is currently working at ISDIN as a Medical Consultant in the Medical Marketing department.
