María Tomás Carmona, M.D and Ph.D., obtained her medical degree from the University of Granada, Andalucia, Spain (1994 to 2000), and her microbiology specialty at A Coruña Hospital, Galicia, Spain (2001 to 2005). Over the years, she has investigated different mechanisms of resistance to antimicrobials in several pathogens, such as A. baumannii and P. aeruginosa (featuring over 30 publications about this topic) in various research centers (2006 to 2007 at CIB, Madrid, Spain; 2008 to 2009 at HPA, London, United Kingdom).

Currently, she is working with a Miguel Servet contract from Instituto Salud Carlos III (research contract, National Health System) initiating new research on the relationship between resistance and virulence mechanisms in these pathogens. Moreover, she is the coordinator of the Genomic Diagnosis Unit in the Clinical Microbiology Department at University Hospital of A Coruña (Galicia, Spain), whose director is Dr. Germán Bou and which examines new molecular techniques for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.
