Now, I realize to this point all of my posts have been showing the glam life of sightseeing in Spain. However, I assure you that I am, in fact, working. Although it is ironic that I make this post on Spanish National Day, when we all have the day off… My research affiliate is part of the faculty at Universitat de Barcelona, and I have been splitting time between the UB hospital and my office at UB Parc Científic. My colleagues have been more than welcoming with both my research plan and making my transition a bit easier, and take me to lunch “early” at 1:30p instead of the usual 2p lunchtime. Right now I am developing two projects regarding organ donation specifically in the EU that I hope should have some interesting findings in the upcoming months, so I will keep you updated!
