Omar Clavero Carletti

Omar Clavero Carletti is a medical doctor, graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Córdoba (Argentina) in 1983.

After obtaining his bachelor’s degree, from 1984 to 1986 he worked at the National University of Córdoba in the Cell Biology department, carrying out research in the field of embryology, studying the migration of neural crest cells in chicken embryos.

From 1986 to 1989 he did his residency in pathological anatomy at the National Clinics Hospital of the National University of Córdoba, where he graduated as a pathologist. Thereupon, he worked as a pathologist in Argentina until 2004, when he moved to Spain.

Since 2005 he has been working in the Cancer Epidemiology Research Programme (PREC) at the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO), where he has actively participated in different studies on human papillomavirus (HPV) and its associated cancers. His work focuses on the pathological evaluation of samples collected for the different studies.

Additionally, from 2007 he joined the Pathological Anatomy Department at the Quirón Hospital, where he applies his experience acquired as a researcher into healthcare practice.
