Marta Félez received her degree in biotechnology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in 2011. In 2012, she completed a master's degree in biochemistry, molecular biology and biomedicine at UAB. In September 2012, she joined UNIC as a pre-doctoral fellow.
She is interested in understanding the connection between viral genetic diversity and clinical manifestation of papillomavirus (PV) infections.
She is studying the causal link between infection of certain PVs and differential association with disease. Currently, she is exploring the evolutionary origin and significance of codon usage composition bias of human PVs with respect to the host.
