Staff

The company is headed by Diego Arroyo. Diego is a molecular biologist with extensive experience in the biomedical sector. He holds a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology by the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

 Diego began his scientific track record at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), where he conducted research work for six years in the Molecular Genetics Dept. of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona. He continued his scientific career at the laboratory of retrovirus of the Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol (Can Ruti) of Badalona. Afterwards he led for two years the molecular biology laboratory in an important special techniques laboratory.

 After these scientific and professional stages, he founded Progenie molecular in 2003, with the aim of reflecting all the accumulated experience on a centre specialized in molecular diagnostics.
He is currently the president of the Spanish Society of Molecular Diagnostics (SEDM). He is a MA Health Technologies professor at the University Complutense of Madrid.

Laura Ruiz is a biologist and has a degree in Biochemistry and molecular biology by the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). During the degree she took an internship at the Department of Cytology and Histology of the UAM.

She earned her PhD at the Department of Biochemistry of the Faculty of Medicine of the UAM, and worked as a researcher at the Molecular Genetics Unit of the Ramon y Cajal Hospital in Madrid for 6 years until the end of the thesis in 2012.

Laura is a member of the Spanish Association of Human Genetics (AEGH), Spanish Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (SEIMC) and the Spanish Society of Molecular Diagnostics (SEDM).

Since 2015 she leads the R & D Department of Progenie molecular and currently as the technical manager.
