Dr Niubel Díaz Padilla
I was born in Havana in 1966 and I graduated as a cum laude doctor from the University of Medicine of Havana in 1990. I completed the specialty of Clinical Biochemistry, graduating in 1995. From 1990 to 1998 I worked as a researcher in the Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) in Havana. Later as part of a joint project with the National Institute of Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC), I received a scholarship from the Royal Society of Medicine to work in this center in the United Kingdom.
I moved to the Netherlands in 1998. In order to revalidate my medical degree, I studied 3 years at the medical university of Utrecht and in 2007 I graduated as a doctor in Holland. In 2007 I also obtained the PhD title. I have worked as a senior donor doctor in Sanquin since 2010, and in 2016 I obtained a donor doctor specialization profile KNMG.
