Andrea Zapater Matute, from the Precision Medicine in Chronic Diseases Group, will represent the UdL in the final 'Present your thesis in 4 minutes'.

She presented her thesis in 4 minutes: 'Precision Medicine for patients with sleep apnoea and acute coronary syndrome'

Andrea Zapater Matute, graduate in Biotechnology, student of the Doctoral Programme in Health at the University of Lleida (UdL) and member of the Group of Precision Medicine in Chronic Diseases, will represent the UdL in the final of the competition Presenta la teva tesi en 4 minuts organised by the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation and the Catalan universities.

Zapater Matute presented his thesis in 4 minutes: Precision Medicine for patients with sleep apnoea and acute coronary syndrome, directed by Ferran Barbé Isla, lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine, and Manuel Sánchez de la Torre, lecturer at the Faculty of Nursing and Physiotherapy. Their project focuses on personalised medicine, specifically on the individualised management of patients with breathing disorders during sleep who have suffered an acute myocardial infarction. The research points out that sleep health is a fundamental pillar for managing cardiovascular risk factors in our population and that treating this disorder could be a personalised solution for reducing the risk of a new cardiovascular episode.

The jury valued the clarity of her speech and the communication skills of Andrea Zapater Matute, who was presented with a batch of UdL products offered by the Social Council. The UdL winner will compete with 11 other doctoral students from the other participating Catalan universities in the final to be held in Barcelona on a date to be determined. This competition, which aims to bring the research of young scientists closer to society and encourage their interest in popularising science, challenges participants to explain their research in a maximum time of 4 minutes, using simple and easily understandable language.
