Raul Zamora Ros

Raul Zamora-Ros holds a Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics (University of Barcelona-UB, 2000), a Bachelor’s degree in Food Science and Technology (University of Barcelona-UB, 2003), a Diploma in Statistics in Health Sciences (Autonomous University of Barcelona-UAB, 2007) and a Master’s degree in Methodology of Health Sciences (Autonomous University of Barcelona-UAB, 2009).

He earned his PhD from the University of Barcelona in 2008. He did several postdoctoral stages: in Bellvitge Institute for Biomedical Research (IDIBELL, 3 years between 2009-2013), in the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, 3 years between 2011-2015) and in the University of Cambridge (9 months between 2012-2013).

In 2016 he joined the Unit of Nutrition and Cancer (UNAC) in the Cancer Epidemiology Research Programme (PREC) in his current position as a Principal Investigator under a Miguel Servet Fellowship. By using dietary questionnaires and nutritional biomarkers, he evaluates the potential relationships between dietary factors (polyphenols and polyphenol-rich foods in particular) and the development of chronic diseases, especially cancer.

He has published over 100 peer-review articles, 12 book chapters and participated in more than 50 conferences (lectures and posters) in his field. Since September 2019, he is also Assistant Professor in the University of Barcelona. In 2019 he won the 2nd Edition of the Research Award in Nutrition awarded by the spanish foundation "Jesús Serra“.
